....C! Ah little C in my worst class....the poor kid really really played up for the first term and literally never ever did the small amount of written work (like 8 words!) I asked them to. His teacher's approach was just to send him out of the class, but I've done my best to try and help him, setting him little individual targets (for examle writing the date and two words!), giving him punitions when he messes around and praising him up for even the littlest thing. Gradually he'd been getting less and less punishments, and today, before I'd even had time to notice he was quiet he said "finished", I was like "oh yeah right" went to look, and, by gum, he had! He'd written the date, title and 10 words! This is such a break-through and would have really made my day if the rest of it hadn't been filled with almost every other child in the school being chatty and fidgety. They just seem to be really pushing their luck this week, don't know if my lessons are boring them or what (I feel my methods getting a bit repetitive) but they just will not be quiet. But, yay for C!
Town is filled with police and gendarmes as the Prime Minister is in town today, more election stuff. Will write all about that soon. Right now I have to go to the laverie as have Matt and Megan here this weekend and yesterday ended up being dominated by t'internet.
