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!
