    Jane,

    I just wanted you to know that I had the exact same scenario last week as the one you mentioned. While the students were excellent listeners while I was giving directions, as soon as I let them "loose" to work on their assignments, the talking was nonstop. I think I assumed they were out of control and just socializing, until I took a step back and looked at what they were really doing. They were helping one another and getting their work done. That really helped me to keep things in perspective. It made also realize that there is such a huge difference in the atmosphere of 1st grade classrooms and 5th grade classrooms.
