Hi gang!
I humbly come before you to ask for your suggestions on something
I'm sure has been discussed previously, but I passed over, because it
was not relevant at the time.
I have this year been assigned 2 kindie art classes at the end of my
high school day. Believe me, I have a whole NEW RESPECT especially for
all my colleagues working in lower elem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Y'all ought
to get paid 3x what we do!!!!!!!! (and I know there are some of you out
there who may not agree, but 'walk a mile'!....).
Anyway, please share what you may do successfully to quiet these
excitable little ones down-or get their attention quickly? It's been 24
years since I've had kindies (my student teaching)-all my time has been
with MS and HS students-and lord knows, what I use with secondary is
laughable in this other world! (and do I have stories!!!!)-anyway, it's
been humbling, as I say-and just let me say, flashing lights isn't
practical in the configuration of the room-I've tried clapping (which
kinda works)....So please give me your words of wisdom...And please
know, I do try to switch what we do so they aren't sitting too long,
etc....do ya just wait for them to grow used to school routines or
what??? I have tried to meet with the 2 kindie teachers but our
schedules make this very difficult.
