I am student teaching right now and it is going wonderful..EXCEPT for guided reading. The kids are always talking and I keep reminding them to take turns. I don't understand, they listen to me when I teach the whole group, but not for this. Are there any suggestions or tips. I know some people try a magic pencil, where you can only be talking when you are holding it. I might try that out. Please let me know any ideas you might have!!!! I am eager to learn new ways of conducting guided reading.
