Hi-I am working long term in a 1st grade class. I have set expectations out in the beginning.The problem I am having right now is that the students are very chatty. It is difficult to teach a lesson when they are chatty. Ive used several signal and attention catchers but they'll stop for a bit and go back to talking when I start the lesson. There is no behavior issues. Any tips will be helpful.

Identify who the talkers are and move right next to them when you are speaking. If this is not possible. Have a quiet spot that the talkers must move to if you give them a signal.

First grade can be tough. Good luck.

Most elementary classrooms are arranged to encourage collaboration and group work. Maybe think about how they are arranged when you are trying to teach. I find the rug best... Everyone is facing me.

and seat them in a u in front of you so you can see them all. After getting their attention, if any start talking while you are teaching, STOP immediately and stare at them until they squirm. Everyone will follow your gaze. Try it- it works. But don't teach while they are talking, or it won't stop. Good luck!

I find that stopping until they are quiet works with all age groups. I also find that writing the plan for the day on teh board works. With uppe rlevels I write the assignment, for lower levels I write the time and the subject.
