I am a new 1st grade teacher having MAJOR behavor issues in my classroom. I can not for the life of me get my students to LISTEN or follow directions. My school uses 1-2-3- Magic as a displine plan, in addition, students in my room earn tickets to help them get into the treasure box. We created our own rules. 1) Keep Hands and Feet to Ourselves 2) Respect Ourselves and Others 3)Try our Hardest 4)Follow Directions 5) Use Whisper Voices. No matter what I try students are STILL talking while I am talking (I repeat myself 5000 times), playing while walking in the halls (we take hallway timeouts), lining up noisy (we sit back down). In the classroom, we are play fighting, stealing other students things, and just downright being rude and disruptive. My other teacher's and administrator's say I must not be implementing 1-2-3 Magic right....but they do not care about the consequences. Can you think of some good consequences? Do you have tricks/tips to getting them to listen and stay seated in their seats? I know it is only our 2nd week of school but I am trying to curb this negative behavior before it gets completely out of control. THANKS!!!!
