Today was my first day ever as a teacher. It went very well. I had very little issues. I'd have to say my biggest problem is having so much to cover as far as rules and routines go. I do have a big problem child though and I could use some advice. This boy REFUSES to listen. He would not stop talking at any point in time. He kept talking to his neighbors and his friends and wasn't getting any work done. At one point he went to the classroom library to pick out a book and I had told him to return to his seat to read it. He ignored me and tried to sit on the floor with another boy and I said "****, your seat is right here, you have 5 seconds to sit down in it before you flip another card." He rolled his eyes and said "But I don't wanna sit there." I told him that I didn't care and he needed to follow the classroom rules and be respectful. He ended up having to flip his card twice but he was still being a little jerk. Any ideas?
