I have a very tough class this year. I have two students who are constantly in need of correction, blurting out, moving around the room at inappropriate times, basically doing whatever they can to draw attention to themselves. I have 20+ students and I feel like about 20 of them are getting the short end of the stick each day. In addition to the 2 already mentioned, I have another one I have heard is on medication for ADHD, another one who probably should be, and one who is just plain mean in a sneaky sort of way. My frustration is off of the charts right now. My administration is somewhat helpful, but at the same time they have pretty much removed all meaningful forms of in class discipline. We have had the option of having the kids stand on the line for 5, 10, or 15 minutes of their recess or lunch recess. Now, we can only put them on the line if we stay out there with them to ensure they are let off in time because the playground people don't believe it should be their job. (I worked hard to keep kids off of the line, but some really earned it). Some days the only breaks I have are at recess and lunch. On those days, I usually am taking care of going to the restroom, making copies, preping something for the rest of the day or the following day. I can't afford the time to stand on the line with the students who earned it. So, students who should be standing on the line, now are not. We have been warned not to make students write sentences either. Does anyone out there have any suggestions for making the card pulling system have immediate consequences, and be meaningful to the students?
