Ricki- (im not sure if your e-mail is down or if it's my machine but i
could post a private response)

Youre idea about "they enjoy art so whats wrong with letting them in during
lunch/recess"...I am more than happy to have them. They do enjoy art, they
do work hard, but they do not want to come in during recess. Many of my
students DO come in during their recess (which doesn't always coincide with
my lunch, but it's no problem to have them in there with another class).
But I have several students who will not give up that recess time. I
always phasee it in a positive way, like an opportunity, but some just
don't want to. I also think that some of these kids really NEED that
recess time, to get out some physical energy, to work on social skills, to
have a break form sitting in a chair. I'd like a recess too! SO I'm
trying to develop either a curricular modification method or a scheduling
relationship with their teachers to get them in some extra time, but also
to promote their own growth in "pace". Many of these students are behind
in other clases too, and ultimately lose out because they don't get all the
curriculum, and it doesn't help their esteem to always be last, or to never
finish and havve other kids move on, or everyone move on and they have no
sense of completion or closure. If you have any more ideas let me know,
and thanks for responding....this is a toughy.
