I have a HUGE problem with students talking back in class. I am a first year teacher in first grade, and I am AMAZED at how rude these kids are. They are disrespectful too. When they are doing something wrong, and I re-direct them, they ALWAYS back talk me. They will be talking and I will say, "Please stop talking" or "Please don't talk while I am talking" and they will reply with "I wasn't talking!" when clearly, they were the ones talking. I have a huge issue with whining and complaining too. When we transition to a different activity, they will complain and say "awwwww" like they are complaining and seem uninterested. I have been trying so hard to get this under control, because I am scared to death I will have an issue when I am observed by my principal. What advice do you have when dealing with talking back, complaining, and disrespectful students?
