Neologism

Today was pooptastic. I’m not sure if I am the first person to use that word or not, but I’m claiming it as my own. Hence the post title. Today was absolutely, 100% USDA Grade A, pooptastic. Today, I hit a breaking point. I could no longer tell myself to breathe and wait patiently for students to stop talking. Is it my fault? 100% Yes. There are a lot of things that I need to improve upon before I can even begin to point fingers. 

First, I think I need to synthesize all of my discipline methods into one comprehensive method. On their own, they all work. But they all solve different problems. I am guilty of dropping one method when focusing on the others. 

Next, we need to practice. We need to practice as many times as necessary before moving on to the next element in the classroom behavior expectations. In fact, I’m writing explicit plans right now for tomorrow. By explicit, I mean explicit. At first I wrote that I needed to model what it means to follow along when reading. Then I kept going by adding a point below that on exactly how to do it and what to say. 

I’m going to do everything I can to ensure that tomorrow is NOT another pooptastic day.
