Hi guys! My question for you is about your working volume in class. I have a lot of trouble having my class work quietly and not having conversations. I am okay with a little talking but it seems that they so easily become distracted. They stop working, go visit friends, start writing notes, argue, make jokes, etc. I have a pretty solid behavior ladder in my classroom and each year I find that the groups are different. I know I have a pretty immature group next year and I'm trying to decide how hard I want to enforce the work quietly/no talking rule. Do you have the class work in complete silence, and is that a reasonable expectation to have at the beginning of second grade? Do you have any procedures in place to facilitate this process? Thanks!
