    Good Morning! :)

    I have a group of very chatty, very LOUD 28 first graders! Thus far in the school year I have used the "stop light" ~ where the switch their name tag from green to yellow (warning) and from yellow to red (loss of recess for 5 minutes). Everyday I send home a calendar and if they get a stamp on it it means they stayed on green all day, etc.

    I am wondering if that is not strict enough? Or if it is too strict? My children are VERY well behaved when I am teaching a lesson, reading a story, or at small group centers. But the moment we do a "seat work" activity, they all start talking even though I say countless times "this is a quiet activity" etc etc.

    I have treasure chest days, stickers for positive behavior, etc... But there is a group of 6-7 boys who just WONT stop talking, behave in the halls, sit quietly at lunch, etc etc.

    Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!

    Starista,

    There is a site called http://www.callowayhouse.com which features the YACKER TRACKER and it makes a loud noise when the noise level is too high and the red light comes on. When the noise level in the room is where you want, it will stay green. I highly recommend this item. It's less than $60 and very effective for loud students. It will get their attention and they will be in CONTROL of their OWN behavior as well. I would also suggest a site called http://www.redandgreenchoices.com as well.

    Troy, this site looks great! I think I will use it next year in my class (and this year with one specific student). Have you read any of the books. Would you recommend any of the books? I teach a K-3 Mild ASD class.

    Proud,

    I would recommend any of the books on that site. I was truly impressed myself with this site. It allows the student to be in control of his/her own behavior and no more excuses either. If he/she chooses to misbehave there are red consequences for those choices and it's pointed out directly to them.
