    Managing large classes

    I am a Specials teacher (Spanish). This year, our 4th grade
    classes have jumped to 32 students. Previously, there were
    about 24 in each class. I am struggling with this change
    because it is difficult to get (and keep) their attention.
    I try to do a variety of activities in my classes such as
    games, worksheets, stories, group activities, and projects.
    Some work better than others, but overall, I am
    discouraged. If any of you have classes this size, can you
    offer some tips and advice? I only see them once a week for
    45 minutes, so there isn't a lot of time.
