I'm new at teaching young kids as well, but what I've found to be the most successful is to praise, praise, praise the positive behavior that kids display and quickly and quietly correct those that are off track.
I couldn't agree more! I've had great results praising the rowdy, attention seeking students when they do something good. In one case, one rowdy student turned into an angel student. The transformation was amazing!
