    wow...were you in my class today? I had the same chaos of food, boots, clay pots, artwork, spills...I finally cleared the class and took them outside for the last half hour to run off the energy. The kids loved it but I thought I was going crazy. I did yell a few times to get their attention--I am convinced that with a class of 26 that is sometimes the only way to be heard (the school dance was also happening below us in the gym so there was this "thumping" of beats going on all afternoon). I also do all the "I like how you're sitting, etc" and point system and rewards...but I have kids who could care less about that stuff...or seem to in any case...so what do you do...grin and bear it...the kids only remember the fun stuff...
