    Crying in primary grades
    By Cindi

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I am a long term sub in a first grade classroom and I have two students who are constantly crying. I deal with them both differently, because they cry for different reasons. One of them cries whenever he gets mad at me for telling him to sit down, not to talk, etc. so I tell him he will have to stay in 5 minutes for recess if he doesn't stop. It usually works. The other student cries because someone says something to her, she lost something, etc. so I let her put her head down for a few minutes until she is feeling better. This usually works with her. It just gets frustrating when they constantly cry. I try not to make a big deal about it or baby them.
