My class is driving me crazy. I have 14 boys and 11 girls. The girls are all angels, and I'm not exaggerating. I have never had to give any of the girls any reminders. They always do as they're told. The boys on the other hand...Eight of them are a handful. We were warned about this group last year when they were in 1st grade, and now I see why. Everything is difficult for these 8 boys. For example, during a transition today, about 5 of them jumped or slid to their carpet spots. So I had the class go back to their table spots to try it again. They were then crawling, rolling, jumping, hopping, etc. back to their table spots. So we came back to the carpet to practice going to our tables the right way to practice going to the carpet the right way. This is my entire day. The thing that's driving me the most crazy is the shouting out. They comment on everything. And the whining is obnoxious, too. They keep asking me when recess is, and when it is time to go home. I gave them a lecture last week about how they should never ask me when anything is, because our schedule is posted. I told them that I will never answer questions like "When is recess?" or "What are we dong next?" I know it takes time to get into the routines, but they are driving me crazy. The shouting out is the most annoying. What do you do when 1/3 of your class shouts out? I don't want to punish the whole class, but keeping a checklist or taking recess minutes away for those kids only would be tough, because so many of them are shouting out. Any suggestions?
