This is my first year teaching first grade and these kids are so sweet...but SO TALKATIVE!! It is unreal. The other teachers on my team say it's the most talkative group of first graders they have ever seen. Does anybody have tips for a talkative class? We have a schoolwide positive behavior management plan, and I am very positive in my own behavior management. I reward kids who set good examples and make good choices. I have been giving them time out at recess but it's getting to where they lose the whole time.
