Drama, Drama! Fighting Cabin Fever in the Dead of Winter

Ever since we got back from winter break, my class has seemed to have a BIG case of cabin fever! With the bitter cold and the nonstop snow, we haven't even been able to go for a walk outside! I truly believe that because I have a small class, it is so much easier for the kids to get on each other's nerves because they are always around each other. We are like a family. Since we haven't had the chance to run around outside on the playground at the end of the day, we've been going a little bonkers inside our classroom. The result? A lot of tattle-taling and drama about things that aren't important!

When I left school on Friday I was determined to plan a lesson all about tattling, kindness and what defines a "real" problem. We are even tattling on each other for our coat sleeves brushing against each other as we put our coats on at the end of the day! Seriously?! A few weeks ago I was visiting a friend at another school and she had a great visual for "problem sizes" that her speech therapist made for one of her kiddos (thanks, Rebecca!). I tried my best to recreate it tonight because we need all the help we can get! I hope you are all surviving the dead of winter!
