Classroom Management

Hi all!  So sorry I haven't been blogging lately... I'm still trying to get into my new routine of being a working mom.  It's tough getting all the things done in a school day that I'm used to getting done.  I'm trying to work more efficiently while I'm at work, but I still feel like there aren't enough hours in the day! One other challenge I have been dealing with since being back is classroom management.  This took me a little by surprise since this is my 11th year in the classroom!  I think, in the past, I have taken this a little for granted.  Sure, I struggled a little in my first years (who didn't), but lately it was never a issue.  So when it popped up a few days in a row, with students exhibiting some less than desirable behaviors, I knew that I had to address it! I anticipated that the transition from my maternity sub to me was going to be a little difficult, but I was not prepared for some of the behaviors that I have had to deal with.
