The problem I'm running into is my 3rd period class I have to threaten them almost everyday because of the continual problems I have with them talking while class is going on. I punished them last week because they didn't get to do a fun activity that was hands like the other classes. Once they found out they all came back to me the next day wondering why they didn't perform the same activity. I had to take the first 15 minutes of class to lecture them about their attitudes in class and how right now I don't trust them to perform demonstrations because they want listen. I hate doing this because it hurts the other students in the class. This weekend I have called Parents to make sure this this type of behavior stops because in my three years of teaching this has never occured.
The funny part when I talked to one of my fellow teachers and told them about the students I was having problems with they said they continue to have problems with the same students and sometimes they just skip their class. I hope the conversations I had with the parents will help this week. I hate to have these students removed from my class and put in weightlifting or something. Like my Father use to tell me when I was a child you have show some people that Fat Meat is Greasy. Meaning that you have to mean what you say and follow up with it . I'm sure this will be my last week dealing with this problem. I refuse to allow behavioral problems to damper my class.
