    I'm not alone

    This is my 19th year of teaching 1st grade and I have one of those classes that you are describing. I, too, finally had to go back to paper and pencil work because they just can't handle the freedom of the "fun" things. Every once in awhile I do the fun things but they still can't handle too much of it. I'm just trying to get through day by day. I just keep telling myself that a class like this only comes around ever so often. One thing that was pointed out to me by my para one day,(as I was bummed out about the noise) was that it was a little noisy but it was productive noise. It was the noise of students working. I know it made me feel better.
