It's my first year teaching. I've tried to establish routines, and I know it's only the fourth day of school, but I feel like I'm getting nowhere. The children in my class are SOOOOOO talkative! We practiced a fire drill today (just our class), and we talked ahead of time about the importance of being quiet, why we have to be quiet, etc. However, when it was time to actually walk outside they were SO loud, stopping for drinks, etc. I feel like everything I say is through one ear and out the other. I can barely have them sit for 5 minutes. I'll do some type of attention-getter and 10 seconds later they're all talking again. I know this is probably typical for the beginning of the year in kindergarten, but I'm going crazy! I feel like nothing I do is productive. All we do is practice, practice, practice, and I'm not seeing any results. Any advice?
