From the things I saw and heard last year I knew this years' class would be more difficult. I was right, and I need some advice! Most of my 22 students came from the same teacher last year, and she had two strikes against her 1) she was first year and 2) She came in mid-year. She did her best, but her management was poor. As a result, her class learned bad behaviors like blurting out, bickering with each other, picking on classmates, and so on. Last year my class was sweet, quiet, and a pleasure to be around. This year I'm really struggling to manage their behaviors, making for a looooong day Here's a few things I'm struggling with, maybe you can help.... - Constant blurting out. For two boys, I know they can't help it due to one having autism and the other ADHD. - Walking around the room during instruction. - They trip each other, talk, and spin around while walking in the hallway. - Talking during instruction. Sometimes they will look at me, then go right back to talking even after I've called them out on it! I've modeled, modeled, modeled and praised the children who show good behavior but I feel like I'm making no gains. We've also practiced, practiced, practiced and still no improvement! What would you try?
