Tomorrow we will be talking about fire drill procedures and practicing what to do as the second of six fire drills will happen on Friday morning. The bells can be loud and frighten the children but after the first two they are usually much calmer and things go smoother. Obviously, the first priority is to get the children safely out of the building but if they are screaming or upset it is hard for them to listen for directions. Supervising the front of the line, the middle of the line and the back of the line of screaming/crying/hysterical children all by myself, and still managing to get to our spot without losing anyone can be quite a feat. So. Tomorrow we practice....and discuss .... and practice again. Wish me luck.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
