Re: Getting kids "riled up"...
- Hello again,
Judy has asked that I share my 3 expectations with the group. They are: 1; Sit quietly in your seat 2; Listen to directions 3; Raise your hand if you have a question (or need suppies). It is amazing that once I said these in class, they immediately followed them. There are always the ones who don't listen, but it is hilarious how their neighbors that do, will remind them of the rules! I was spending alot of time explaining the project or directions over and over as kids were not listening or visiting with their neighbors. I had little kids this year (k-3), so may differ a bit next year when I have the whole school (k-6).

> Funny you seem to have the opposite problem that I have. I teach elementary art in Texas. Teachers know they are getting a "prep" period (break) when they bring their kids to me, so frequently, the attitude of taking a break or playtime is relayed to the students, causing them to get riled up as they enter my room. Then I have to calm them down in order to start the lesson! I also have problems with the noise level.
