I think I have these same kids in high school!!
What I've done is take them back to what they last DID handle - sounds like
cleanup is a problem for your little ones - up and out of their seats.
Someone in here had table monitors, I've read about silent cleanups, I'm not
sure how she did it, I don't recall duct tape being involved, but it's always
an option...maybe if you try one kid up from each table, a sponge for each
kid to pass down, best table gets to line up first, a cute hand stamp, a
gaudy tropphy for the table who does best for a week. Something that's
controlled, but friendly...my high school kids would rather watch Penn and
Teller (or Sister Wendy) so I have worksheets that go with all the videos,
otherwise they just blow them off! Hang in there!!!!! We need you to civilize
the little darlin' before they get to high school!!! God bless you!! :-) Deb
