Follow Directions

Please, just follow directions. It seems like such a simple request. But not so simple for everyone. I try to think of different ways to give the directions, but how many times/ways can you say, “Writing is quiet time, except for sounding out”?  Of course I don’t want little robots either. What a fine line we walk everyday.

    We certainly do, ‘walk a fine line everyday.’ I have found with older children (7-8 year olds) can write in silence but I teach 5 and 6 years and they just can’t do it.
