Faith ( my youngest, 2nd grade) had to write " I will not talk without permission" 100 times over the weekend. She said the whole class had to do it. Apparently the teacher wasn't at school Friday and the class acted up with just the assistant being there. But yesterday she also told me they they don't get recess for the rest of the year as part of that same punishment !!

I think that is a little extreme!! Do you?

Way too extreme! I could see it for maybe a week but, the rest of the year is just insane!

That is too extreme.  I would call the school and talk to the pricipal about it.  How else are these kids supposed to get exercise and get out all of the energy?

I do think that is very extreme. I mean, kids are going to be kids. Some people shouldn't be teachers if they can't understand that. I'm not saying they should let the kids run all over them, but sometimes they get irritated too easily with the kids.

I talked to her teacher. She said that they had already changed their minds about it and decided that the class would just sit out the first 10 or 15 mins of recess each day instead of the entire recess time....  I expressed my opinion about it and she said that if their behavior improved then she would consider letting them have their full recess time back. I'm thinking omg, is the entire class really that bad??? Anyway at least it's not the whole recess anymore

Well that's good.  Still a bit harsh.  She must not be real good with kids.  Kids are gonna be like that.  Hence the reason I no longer am a bus driver!
