I am a kindergarten teacher (children from 3 to 5) who's been facing troubles to get them attention. I feel they don't give me any respect, since they start chatting as soon as I come to the class. Some of them turn back and just don't care about the class. I am very disappointed! When I taught adults and teens a few years ago it was totally different! They loved my classes! Now, with the youngers I am considering to give up! Could anyone advise me with some tips to make the children pay attention and enjoy the classes?
