    What are you two using for discipline when the kids get chatty?

    In my room, the kids are in groups and each group receives a group point for showing me that they are ready for the next activity. (They show me with heads on desks and no talking). I've been using peer pressure to help my social butterflys quit talking.

    Another thing I do is give directions ONCE. If a student is not listening, talking, or playing their name goes on the board. If this happens twice that student owes me recess. In the beginning of the year, I'm very hard nosed and consistant...I can always lay off later. The first day or two I generally have 1-2 kids in from recess and move 1-2 to the end of the lunch line for talking...but then they realize I mean business and are much better behaved.
