Today I went to Club 2:45 again and this time I had a very different experience than last time. I was placed in a second grade classroom and I was in there the whole time. There were seven students in the class and I was told before I went in there that they were a wild group. Well that was not an understatement. These kids yelled at each other, threw things, and they would not settle down or listen to their teacher at all. It was very frustrating for me to be in there because I felt like I might be able to do something to help the situation, but at the same time I did not want to be stepping on the toes of the teacher that was already in there. I am hoping that the experience I had in there that was just a class having a bad day, because that classroom was very out of control. I will be asking to go back to the same grade this week so that I can compare this experience to the last one and see if it is a consistent thing, or something that goes on all the time. I will be curious to go back see what it is like next time.
