Julie - I am a teacher at a private school, so I don't have many
problems with this, but when I did my student teaching I learned a lot
about collective bargaining. It really works.

always remember that you can
Use thier characteristics to your advantage: (2 things apply here)
1 Kids are great problem solvers. so use that to your advantage and
give them a chance to help solve the problem!
2 Their intense desire for the full of the playful spirit,

Here is an idea:
1st DAY
At a Peace table ... try getting some of thier feedback, ask them what
they think,... problem solve with them to identify the problem and get
it under control,

2nd DAY - Submitting bargain proposals
Have kids submit thiers
One Stradagy for consideration: create a visual warning system,
Purpose:to account for the preformance of the class.

, as a reward have a action painting party, as behavioral problems
happen the kids who caused th problem create the mark that crosses out
one letter of the word action. If all the letters go then it will just
be a painting party,

lastly... VOTE for approval, If there are any dissents then the
disenters will have to groups together talk about it and then explain!

If this might be too complicated or too much try something simple:
try putting on music that has no words, some jungle sounds or whale
sounds perhaps. No word allowed helps signifigantly, and avoid popular
styles of music, (except for the party because you got to get them to
dance when they action paint)

I hope a few of these ideas are helpful

Ttake care
