I subbed in a 1st grade room today and WOW, I've been so lucky with great classrooms for so long that I forgot what its like to have a disruptive group of kids all feeding off of each other. This type of class makes me want to run and get a job some place else. It was a Zoo, there is not other word for it. I asked the kids if they were always this noisy and they all agreed they were, it was a conspiracy I'm positive.
Interesting factoid: Penguins only live in the Southern Hemisphere. Had to go to 1st grade to learn that little tidbit.
