I just needed some advice. I have a class of 22 kindergarteners with one assistant. They are too young to be in kindergarten at a public school, so they are in private kinder. This school is also a day care and the majority of my kids are not new to the school and have been there several years and go year round. Today was my first day and the kids were completely out of control. Some have the worst behavior problems I could have ever imagined. Their prior teacher warned me, but I thought I would be fine. My assistant is a vet and she was helpful. I’m just curious about what classroom management strategies you use. I gave out stickers to the good kids. I’ve asked some other people for advice today, and they just say things like, “be assertive”… There’s one kid who will do what he’s told for 30 seconds, and he’s off doing something else immediately. He’s a distraction to the entire class, repeatedly. There are 3-4 kids in total like this. I didn’t think kindergarten would be so difficult. I couldn't get any of them to do a **** thing. Any advice is appreciated.
