Monte Melnick ran one of the two classes, and Malcolm McLaren took charge of the other. The little 'uns bustled into either of the two classrooms and quickly took over.
In Monte's classroom, he attempted to usher the hyperactive toddlers onto what was simply called "the mat." "Alright kids, could you all take a seat on the big blue mat over there?" He motioned to the rectangular strip of foam and fabric.
Every set of eyes in the large classroom starred up at him, not questioningly, but rather, defiantly. When no one moved, Monte decided to take attendance right there, and altogether skip the mat, ignoring the lack of cooperation.
