Classroom Pet Peeves…and a linky party!

Slide1
So, Alisha at The Bubbly Blonde is having a linky party where you post your biggest classroom pet peeve! Now, I love my job and can’t think of any other profession I would rather have, but I think that when you are sharing a space about the size of most people's living room/kitchen with 22+ little ones, there are bound to be things that get on your nerves! A few of mine would have to be…
3. When kids don’t problem solve: … Mrs. Taylor, I dropped my pencil… (Um, ok, what's your plan now?")
2. When you call a kiddo over on the playground to tell them to stop doing something inappropriate or dangerous and they are screaming, “It wasn’t me,” before you even talk about it…
and my #1 pet peeve of all blasted time is:
#1   (Wait for it…)   When kids step on my toes! Literally step on them- with those darling new Twinkle Toes, or boots, or those Skechers light up numbers…I always say, back up and watch the toes!

Thank you for joining the party! Problem solving is a never ending battle in my classroom also!

Mandy, I totally agree with #3! I always tell my kids, "Okay, what are you going to do about that?" and they just kind of look at me sheepishly and come up with an answer. Argh!

Also, I saw that your name is Mandy Taylor...that used to be my maiden name! Haha, cool coincidence! Happy blogging!

I wonder how many times my school age child has stepped on his teacher's toes....haha! I'm not a teacher so it's good to know the pet peeves so I can work on them with my kids at home.

Currently, it is the constant humming that sounds more like whining or moaning . . . not melodic or pleasant at all! If it's not whining, it's clicking, slurping or general mouth sounds that are very contagious.
