Hi, I was wondering if someone could offer some advice please. I have just taken over a year 2 class and there are certain parts of the day where I find behaviour difficult to manage and I was hoping that someone could offer some strategies I could use: - when children come in from the playground at the beginning of the day they take forever to put their coats on their pegs and sit down on the carpet and then when they do, they start conversations. This results in everything taking twice as long as I have been late into assembly as a result. - when children come in from the playground after playtime and sit down on the carpet for their lesson. They just take ages to organise themselves. I have given them carpet seats but they still take ages to settle down. - when children finish their work at their tables and I ask them to tidy up and come and sit on the carpet - again they take ages to tidy up and sit down. Also, does anyone have any advice as to what I can do when children finish their work as I usually end up with children following me around to show me their work and whilst I am trying to look at their work other children in the class go off task. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I have just returned to work after maternity leave and although I have been teaching for 7 years, I feel like I have completely forgotten all of the behaviour strategies I used to use plus this is the most challenging class I have taught. Thank you.
