It's Not Fair!

Lunch recess indoors is not always fun or fair. Just today all of grade 6 room 204 was kept in for 20 out of the 25 minutes we have for free time. The students who are ready to go up and the last class are complaining about: monitors picking the children who are ready and an observation that I made. First of all, the monitors should pick the students who are ready to ascend the stairs. Instead, the head supervisor called class by class by class. That means that if one person from the whole class isn't ready, the whole class waits. It's students that deserve going upstairs who should go. Many kids are ready to go up, but their class is last to be called. The longer they wait, the more they will get bored. The more the children get bored, the more they will misbehave. Next, there has been a repetition of which class goes last. My observations throughout 3¼years show that it's always the lowest number room that goes first and the highest number room goes last. In grade 5, I was in room 207; highest number class of grade 5. At indoor lunch recess we were always last to go up. What did the kids do to deserve to go last? It's obvious. They are in the highest number room. Certainly, the head supervisor and his boss should change the rules so that the right people get their recess. How would you feel if you were punished collectively?

  1. If all the kids change rooms every week then everyone would have a turn to be first. It would also give the kids a chance to experience all the teachers as they rotate weekly to new classrooms.

    Actually, the kids should rotate to a new school every week so they can experience the joy of having lunch in different lunchrooms at different times.

    Actually, kids should trade parents every week so they can observe and learn from deifferent familiy environments.

    Or maybe we should all become trees. Then we don't have to worry about being first to go to our classrooms.

  2. I am a tree and I resent ironic comment about trees. Trees are highly educated and upstanding members of society.

    Trees are people too.

  4. My favorite way to go back to class is when the supervisor shouts 1-2-2 go and everyone dashes for the door. CHAOS!!!

  6. Going back to class should be done like Bingo. Everyone gets a random number and the numbers are called out one by one
