What do you do when you have kids who do not respect materials? My second class is difficult and it's frustrating to me that they do not respect materials/the classroom. Issues I've had are: -Throwing markers around the room, hitting each other -Throwing a table caddy across the room -Throwing paper balls around the room (this behavior has improved a little once I talked to them about it) -Shredding paper and leaving it on the floor -Something happened to my tissue box today?? and I'm pretty sure it was this class. (laughing when I asked a kid to get a tissue...) Obviously, the kids don't do these things in front of me so it is when I am not looking so I can't exactly give a consequence. However, I've had to stop a whole activity because of throwing markers. My dilemma is that I like to do fun/engaging activities in class but this class seems unable to participate. I am finally finishing up my computation unit soon and I can use the whiteboards when teaching exponents next Friday. I ordered whiteboard markers for very cheap on NAIER for the kids to use. I'm wondering if I should just not allow this class to use them and allow my other classes to use them OR whether there is something I can say/do to help them respect materials. They did used to leave paper all over my room but I was able to teach them to put it into their binder and that has gotten much better. It's not all of the students (just a few) so I could try to watch carefully and students who are not following expectations are not allowed to use materials for a certain amount of time.
