Heads Down, Mouths Quiet
I don't know about you, but my students have spring fever. They are chatty, moving around, pinching eachother, tossing art supplies around, bascially my room has been mayhem coming back from spring break. The first week it was like this, I took the materials away and told my students to put their heads down and not talk for the rest of the period. This helped immensely, by the second week back they were beginning to straighten up. Another trick I pulled was telling each class when they came in how naughty the other classes had been and how they lost their priveledges. Try this out next full moon.
