I think lines are okay to suggest to kids where they should be. But trouble? For wiggling? That does seem crazy for an elementary school! My B is the dreamer. Always singing to herself or talking, always meandering. Hopefully she won't ever be made to feel like a troublemaker.

I know--some teachers seem to be more rigid about the lines. It's unfortunate that I witnessed a student getting reprimanded for wiggling--it's so hard for those little bodies (and big ones, too) to keep still!
