    I too am a first year kinder teacher. I also, feel like I can't keep their attention. I say "voices" when I want to talk and they are not listening, or freeze and listen. This week, I put the word play on the board. We have free play on Fridays and Mondays. My kids were having a hyper kind of days. Everytime my usual methods don't work I erase a letter. They have to have at least one letter left to have free time outside on Friday. Sometimes, all I have to do is warn that I am about to erase a letter, and they settle down. We've had one of those weeks. But in the kids defense, think about where they've been. They have probably come a long way so far. Sometimes I think we just have to remember, they are only 5.
