Hello fellow K teachers! Is it just me, or have the K kids gone nuts recently?? For the last 2 weeks, my kids have been absolutely uncharacteristicly crazy. They talk non-stop everywhere we go/are. They play when they are supposed to be learning, they yell, they run, etc. etc. It is like they have totally forgotten the rules we have practiced since August. Their voices, seriously, NEVER stop. No matter what, they talk talk talk. I have tried everything to get them back on track. We've gone back and practiced procedures, they have lost recess/center time, called home, visited the office or had time out in other classrooms, etc. Nothing has helped. Does anyone have a sure fire strategy to help me get them back on track? I am at my wit's end. I have tried everything I can think of and 6 or so of the kids are causing 90 percent of the problems. The remaining 18 kids feed off these 6. HELP!! Thanks!
