I have spent the evening repeating my new mantra:
iwillnotkillanythirdgradersiwillnotkillanythirdgraders.....

Actually, that should probably read:
iwillnotkillanythirdgradeteachers. I am a first year art teacher. Both
our 3rd grade teachers are also first year teachers. Neither of them
controls their class properly and their kids come to me acting like
monkeys. Those teachers have their kids all day every day; I only have
them 1.5 hours a week, and I have a curriculum to teach. I do NOT have
time for monkey behaviour.

I have tried every thing I can think of to make these kids behave
properly, ie: sit down and close mouths, no running, jumping, throwing
anything, waving scissors, etc. I TRULY hate to resort to bribery (ie:
you be good and you get a treat), but I canNOT think of any consequence
bad enough that they would care about. They don't care if I take their
recess away, they don't care if I call their parents, and they don't
care if they have to go to the principal's office; all he does is talk
to them anyway.

Can some of you more experienced people come up with SOMETHING they
might care about? It is midnight and I canNOT sleep because I'm so
angry about this situation. HELP PLEASE!!!

(thanks)
