These types of behaviors have been around for awhile. I started teaching 20 years ago and dealt with a lot of these behaviors. I taught in a low income school and many kids in our building had very little parental support. It doesnít excuse the behavior but it does explain it. I found that I couldnít just tell kids to walk in the hall. I had to say donít run. Their lives were so full of negative feedback that they didnít understand the positive. My class rules had a do and donít list. Do raise your hand. Donít shout out. They got that. Then I did a daily reward system. I kept a checklist and if they moved past a certain point they lost the ten minutes of free time at the end of the day. They lost the free time before they lost recess. It was funny how hard kids would work for free time but didnít give a flip about recess. Good luck with the rest of the year. Summer will be here soon.
