Hi! I'm a first year Kindergarten Teacher. For the most part I have a pretty good class. They are engaged in learning and for the most part I have little disruptions when I divide them in groups and I work with a teacher group, which I think is excellent for the beginning of the year. My main problem is TALKING. Such as if I ask one child "Did you bring lunch today?" I get 20 other responses "I didn't bring lunch" or "I'm buying lunch!" I also get a lot of children who shout out answers without raising their hand or raise their hand while shouting out an answer. I have stressed that this behavior is not allowed in the classroom and each time I see a behavior I do not like I spend time explaining why its not allowed and I don't want to see it again. I have moved clips putting several children on "bad" colors, however it does not seem to phase them. It's only been a week, but I figure it's best to have them get it right now than have chaos later. Am I doing something wrong or is it just the first week?
