Hi everyone! I am a first year teacher and Monday was my first day of school. I have found my students to be incredibly chatty and I shouldn't need to talk over them. They are great for about half the day and really noisy for the other half and it's really on or off. What are some good strategies that you all use? I need to come up with something fast so that I don't lose control of my class! Also, I've been doing lots of procedures and fun type first days of school games but I did notice that during math which we had an actual lesson for today, they were fine.
