Hi Everyone! I have just started my first teaching job and am with the 3- 3.5 year old age group in a kindergarten/preschool setting. this is very new to me (the ages) as I have found it to be a big difference from primary school and prep school to kindergarten. I need some assistance RE behaviour management tactics to stop them talking, wriggling, getting up etc. This is all happening during carpet times. Their listening skills don't seem to be in tact yet either and they just do not seem to want to listen to anything. HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!! :help: I also have a deaf boy in my class with cochlear ear aids. He has his good days but on his bad days he is very disruptive and growls, squeals, snatches toys etc. When I go to put him in the thinking chair he runs away from me all around the classroom and if I grab him he squeals the place down. My days have become very long because of these things so any help at all would be much appreciated. :2up: Thank you!
