No, You Will Not

He said he was going to start throwing stuff and I just looked at him. And then a giggle escaped. I had to laugh.  This boy was trying so hard to get a rise out of me. But my calm, just-returned-from-Miami self was not having it. Finally I said, "No ________. You will not throw things."  And then I smiled.  A reassuring, slightly threatening smile.

Theme of periods seven and eight: You will not manage my class. I will.

Seriously vacation helped.

From a post-it, circa 2011, self-contained class.
