    Teacher Behavior

    I've been a preschool teacher for 2 years now. I've taught 3 and 4 year olds. I do expect that my students sit criss cross applesauce on the floor for story time. But to expect silence during snack and lunch is ridiculous. I allow my students to chat, but using a soft voice. They are not allowed to scream in my room. They are expected to use their manners as well. I spend a couple of weeks showing my students the difference between a soft voice and yelling. This way, I do not have to resort to "screaming" to gain their attention. Screaming just makes the students want to tune you out.
