I hope I am posting in the right section. As you can see I am new to the forum, so please be gentle :)
I have been asked to take on a class of 23 children all under the age of 6 in a local school! It will be my first proper school-based class, up until now I have had a few private lessons (with some children around 5 years old)
So I have a question which I hope you can help me with....
I am expecting some of the children to run around etc... (as kids do!), so, how I do keep control of such a big class? We all know kids have a short attention span so I am going to use lots of fun, games, singing etc... to keep them interested. But what to do with those kids who insist they MUST play with the sand bucket RIGHT NOW???!!!
