I have four girls in my class that talk to each other NON STOP! It is so disrespectful! They talk right over me and even begin talking again before I even finish my sentence asking them to stop! Help!

Anyone taught kindergarten or elementary schoolers and then made the switch to middle school? I thought it’d be nbd, but middle school is a different beast. They keep testing my patience. Any advice?

What do you take for grades in your class/school/district? We have so much fun exploring and make great growth, but I find our hands on activities, while meaningful, are hard to quantify. Any ideas?

I was told to give one students “food rewards” when he does what he is supposed to do. I will only do this if others on task gets the same reward. Non-perishable, kid friendly, bite size food ideas?
