So, it's lunch time and I have given my class silent lunch. I had no idea that a bunch of 5 year old could be such terrors. Don't get me wrong, I love these kids to death, but today they have been out of control. We have 24 individual tubs of manipulatives and while I was doing small group math, the half allowed to play with them decided to dump each and every container into a huge pile onto the carpet. They didn't stop there. They mixed them up, threw them across the classroom, and walked all over them (breaking a lot of them). It took them 35 minutes to clean and sort them all back into the right tubs. I love my job but today has been awful. It doesn't help that I am PMS-ing, and dieting. I'm drinking a slim fast milkshake when all really want is some chili cheese fries and chicken tenders from sonic. LORD GIVE ME STRENGTH!!!!
