I'm looking for some advice. I teach 2nd grade in an urban school (with about 90% free and reduced lunch) with many students who live in extreme poverty, lack social skills and are generally very low academically. I have a very large class as well-22 students, many with behavior problems. It is a daily struggle to keep my class quiet and there are some students where it seems virtually impossible to get them to sit still or stay in their seats. I'm convinced half of my class is ADHD. Not even kidding. Here are some things I do: Class Dojo. This helps as long as they know I'm giving or taking away points. Walk away from the smart board or don't have my app pulled up on my phone? Forget about it. Dojo top student of the day. The student with the most points gets a prize from the treasure box. Lunch bunch on Fridays. Students that have a behavior percentage of 90% or higher get to come. Table points. Kind of like Dojo, but it's group based and encourages cooperation. Daily table winner gets treats. Brain breaks, wiggle breaks and lots of group work where they are given chances to socialize. The only negative consequences I have is to either take time off of recess or give silent lunch. I only take away a student's whole recess very, very sparingly because I believe kids need to play. Especially these kids because I think many of them don't get to play outside very much because it's unsafe. What else can I be doing? I get so aggravated with them. It's the same students all the time. Every single day. My P passed by my class the other day at a particularly bad moment when I was raising my voice and it was a big wake up call for me. Any suggestions or ideas would be so appreciated! Thanks!
