I have this block of time in the afternoon where I had a lots of kididdles (i.e. EIGHT) pulled for reading support, and it was maaaaajorly throwing me off. What do you do when almost half of your class is missing? Well, I tried dealing. And that wasn’t working. So, I opted to move my recess time to later in the afternoon, which…
