It's amazing what you can do to get little kids to be quiet. When I was in kindergarten, there was an "fake" apple tree made out of felt that covered the wall in the hall outside our classroom. There were 12 apples on it, each with our names on one of them. If we got in trouble, we got our apple picked for a school week. You couldn't imagine how many kids cried because they got their apples picked. It was the worst thing that could have happened in kindergarten.

We always had Green Yellow and Red cards. If you got a red card, you were in time out..

There's always the classic "name on the board" trick. If you had to write it ont he board again, you were sent in the dreaded, "HALL!"

As a 7th grade teacher, I kinda like the Moroccan's solution. Plus, my classroom is on the 3rd floor.

Oooh! Sleekjet! I feel sorry for you. Middle schoolers are the worst when it comes to respect and discipline. I absolutely hated some kids I went to school with in middle division.

I have a particularly noisy group of 3rd year students this year (14-15 year-olds) for English. 28 people in one classroom. A few tricks I've tried (with varying success): Unannounced tests at the end of the period, kicking people out of the classroom (not literally  Big grin ),... The system I've settled for is: I give marks for behaviour and co-operation every lesson. People who don't behave, get zero. Their names are called off at the end of the period. If they manage to get three zeros in one semester, they end their asses up in detention (detention in Belgium is on Wednesday afternoon, when all the others are free, and takes 3 hours). That's been quite effective, and the class has calmed down quite a bit. Another thing this group was notorious for, was the shooting of small balls of paper at each other. We took care of that quickly: Anyone caught shooting one, gets to stay after school every day for a week to clean all the classrooms.
