Class Management Tips:
1) To keep kids off the keyboard when you are presenting, ask them to sit around you.
2) Use time outs aggressively ... if a kid is goofing off, go to the corner for 5 minutes.
3) Use the 'consequences' aggressively.
4) When there is a question, ask advanced kids to help you answer.
