Hi, This will be my 4th year teaching and my 2nd teaching first grade. Behavior management has never been my strength. I am concerned about my students and the way my year has started. I have an extremely chatty and off task group. It feels like I'm teaching kindergarten. Kids come in noisy and talk during quiet work times. I feel like I'm saying shhh all day long. I've reviewed procedures, have visual charts, have gone over them. I have a ticket system, team points, jobs. I've been rewarding the quiet ones and the ones doing what they need to but it's still not going well. As soon as I try to teach a lesson it all starts and I have many playing around. I move clips, redirect and I find it's still so hard to teach. Carpet time is particularly hard. Any tips would be appreciated on how to tame this group. I've found I have broken some rules. Have been too nice or too mean and have shown my frustration. I feel like I need to be firmer to help. I tend to be nice. There is no in between. Any ideas? Thanks so much!!
