I am a first year teacher and am really struggling with my classroom management. I teach second grade and have tried a few different methods and am finding that nothing is working. I teach two pretty rough groups of kids. I started off just carrying around a clip board and taking marks of their conduct sheets that go home each friday. That didn't work so I switched to a color coded chart with clothes pins and that did not work. I now use a system where they get one warning, then they lose a priviledge, and then they fill out a behavior contract to go home. None of these seem to work and my class is always talking when I teach and I am ready to throw in the towel..
