It worked!

Yesterday on my video I shared with you how I was dealing with some talkative sixth-graders, and I am here to report that my plan worked!  Today the girls were awesome!  Also today, I went over some more rules and consequences. I tried to use the lightest most fun tone possible while still being clear with my points so that they would understand how things work.  I used comedy whenever I could in order to drive home major areas of importance.  

One of my philosophies is to be fun but firm.  I believe that we have to help children want to work with us.  I think my mother used to say it best… You get more bees with honey than vinegar.  :)

I hope your day was great with your middle school children!
