I took over a classroom of 3-4 year olds in february.. the teacher prior had no schedules no structure no discipline, she didnt teach them she let them do whatever they wanted. When i took over i had come from being a vpk assistant. I set a schedule, routines, i structured our lessons, i got them to pay attention... for a little while anyway. Then my boss bought a new building. half the classes moved there and a couple classes stayed behind, including mine until demo is done and they finish remodeling the rest. They did move my class to a room twice as big as where we were... now my kids are unruly, loud, crazy, purposefully annoying and act like they are wild. Circletime is a nightmare. I use the "i like how nice bob is sitting on my carpet" they all sit quietly, look at me and then uproar as soon as i start talking. Weve been in this room for 3 weeks. They run around the room like theyve drank a bottle of mountain dew, they hit kick punch slap spit and anything else they can at each other. I have some who blow raspberries the entire time im reading a story. I knew there would be an adjustment period, but i kept to the schedule and they know what theyre supposed to do... they just dont want to. In addition ive gotten several new kids in my class..a couple came from a center that had no doors or structured center time the kids were allowed to roam free wherever they wanted. I can get them quiet, and someone will open the door and ask me for a paper.. i get up, grab it and walk to the door, in those 10 seconds my entire class will have jumped up and started running around screaming chasing each other and getting into my stuff in the teachers box. Ive been researching different things to try and do but introducing something new makes them worse. My boss suggests candy kept in my pocket... but thats not something i can afford to upkeep nor do i want them sugared up anymore... most times they come in with a handful of skittles or m and ms anyways so i dont wanna add to the sugar. I ask them what is the issue today ? they respond with " we wanna go outside right now!" No matter how many times i explain that they know we have set times we go outside and we cannot change them they continue. "well behave if we go outside" "we wanna play not sit here" Im just lost. help!
