Hi everyone, I am a first year teacher (2nd grade) in a very poor district. I moved from small town Iowa and never in my life have I seen children as disrespectful as the students in my school. My students show me very little respect, I have to repeat myself several times before I get their attention. I have tried all sorts of behavior systems (tickets, charts, scoreboards, behavior plans, and notes home). Nothing seems to work! My kids are not overly bad but they are just so disrespectful and rarely stop talking. I am trying to find a system that works so that I can get it ready for next year, because I don't want to repeat the year that I have had this year. Does anyone have any ideas that work well for them?
