I just started my 4th year teaching art in a rural school. This year our k-6th grade school has added a pre-k program. I am noticing that there are certain classes throughout the school that struggle with behaviors, despite having rules to follow and retraining sessions. I am looking for advice on classroom management to reach really difficult classes. These classes are a challenge for their regular classroom teacher as well, and I only see them for 40 minutes every 4th day in our rotation. My principal doesn't want specials teachers sharing reports with classroom teachers concerning behavior and suggested using a sticker chart. I want to be self-sufficient in handling behaviors in my room, and be more effective. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
