Happy Tuesday everyone! Time to link up with Holly at Fourth Grade Flipper for her always fun and informational Tried It Tuesday linky party.
I give a direction and no sooner are the words out of my mouth (and still hanging in the air like in a speech bubble in a comic strip), someone asks me "What am I supposed to do?" or "Where do I put this?" or "How many sentences do I have to write?"
You get the idea.
This is especially frustrating because we use the "Ask three then me" routine in our room. But apparently some kids want to cut right to the chase...
So I have now come up with a system to help cut down on these dreaded "repeats".
When a student asks me to repeat something, their number goes on the board and I begin making hash marks for how many times I have to repeat a direction to them.
I hope you'll head on over to Holly's blog to read about more Tried Its! I'm on my way there now!
