I rarely teach whole group. It is a mess and they don’t pay attention to me anyway. They pretend to. But I know their mind is elsewhere.
My biggest pet peeve is while I am teaching whole group, the kids won’t stay in their seat. They will walk up to grab the bathroom pass to go to the bathroom. They know they can’t do this. Somehow, they think I will suddenly let them though. Sometimes they claim it is an emergency and so I let them go. Then, they have to go again 15 minutes later and it’s another emergency. -.-
They also will walk up to me to ask a question. All the time. Why won’t they raise their hand? Who knows? I send them back to their seat and make them raise their hand. The question is NEVER related to what I am teaching. At all. But is is so urgent that they need to ask me right then and there.
This is why I won’t teach whole group. For my sanity.
