Default Re: games for small rowdy kids?

[quote=KathrynBrooks1;19044]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 agree with this too! There is nothing more effective then show them the right actions through praise. I have a team system in most of my classes. Either boys and girls or teams (A,B,C etc.) Especially in larger classes this works really well. The students in the team who are being naught or inattentive will get roused on by their team mates.
