    Similar situation

    My class is the same. Four of my 6th graders read at a first grade level. The class is very low functioning as a whole. They chat too much, bug each other, and don't get much done. I work on implementing routines as much possible. I also modify, modify, modify! I do fairly simple lessons with a lot of drawing, gluing and cutting. It's just the way it has to be this year. You can only do your best. Remember, you won't be this student's only teacher. At least he has an aide. I'm concerned about this emphasis on inclusion for students who really need alternate placement. I think they just get overwhelmed, can't succeed too well, and get discouraged--as can we! Just keep on trying but be sure to take care of yourself too and give yourself a break! Good luck.
