Difficult Days in First Grade ....
It's been a tough week in the first grade. All year, personal items have been disappearing from students in our classroom/house. Unfortunately, this week was a very dramatic one. We discovered who was taking items, and it has been hard to deal with on all levels. First of all, I want to know why. Second, I'm sad for everyone involved. This is such a tough life lesson for all of us. As a teacher, I want to make sure that the emotional needs of all of the students are met, and that we are able to move past this as a community, but I am mostly concerned for the student that has been taking things. It's going to be a tough road ahead for a few weeks. I keep hoping that I am handling it the best way possible. I am so thankful for my partner, as well as our principal and support staff. I would love to hear how others have worked through these situations. Comments welcome!Pin It
