It must be the weather getting better because the children I work with their teacher is about to pull her hair out of her head. They won't stop talking. She does have a sticker reward system. Green good all day yellow you're on warning and red no sticker and she will write on the day of the calender which is stapled to inside of each child' folder what he or she did that day in order not to get a sticker. However, the teacher said it's not working anymore and she's tired of it. To get their attention she says class, class and the children repeat in the same teacher yes yes. Then she is also praises 'ALOT" she uses 1, 2, 3, eyes on me. She does use alot of positive reinforcements but the fish system is not working.
Does anyone have any ideas how to grasp 1st graders attention. The teacher is AWESOME!!! She treats all the children with respect and dignity.

I had chatty first graders myself for a while. I started doing a star chart. I laminated a poster board, and put 80 pieces of Velcro on it, and the other half of the Velcro went on the back of each star (80 total). If we had a good morning, listening, completing the morning paper, etc- I'd add a star to the chart. If we did a good job listening during calendar time, reading time, etc etc, I'd add a star to the chart. If we had trouble listening, and were talking out of turn, I removed a star from the chart. Once the chart was full (80 stars) the class won a movie and pop corn party. Some days the class could earn 10 stars, others only 1 or 2, for some may have been taken back. I hung the chart on the chalkboard, right in the front of the room, so everyone could see it, and be reminded to follow classroom rules and earn those stars.
