oh - one other thing I do - - is: NOTHING COMES IN - NOTHING GOES OUT, I
won't have kids bring their own supplies - that way I know they should leave
empty handed. My room is ITTY BITTY - so no back packs, lunch boxes, books -
nothing. Some of the older girls carry a purse so, they leave that on my
When we clean up - I give the room a quick eye-ball check and all the table
supplies should be in their places, if not we stay until they are!
I hear your frustration about the administration insinuating that it is your
fault - but I am a hard nose with the kids about it -they baulk - but they
sure know where I stand.
