it is only the 2nd week of school and i am at my wit's end w/ my kids! i have 11 girls and 10 boys, and the majority are VERY wiggly and VERY chatty! when it is whole group time they just fall apart, and i end up trying to seat half the class at desks away from each other while the others are on the rug w/ me. i am running out of desks to put them all in!! i have tried everything short of circus tricks to get them to pay attention - lots of positive stuff, like stickers, SMART CARDS (our schoolwide PBS program), treasure box, team points, etc... they seem to not really care about my approval or about positive rewards for good behavior. we spent 20 minutes today with heads down because i just couldn't get them to get it together long enough for me to actually teach. when we came back together to refocus, they acted like the whole thing hadn't even happened! and lines? forget about it!! i am embarassed to walk them down the hallways! what tricks do you have up your sleeve?
