with one or two assistants.

It is very hard to control the children as they fight and tease each other.
It gets warm in the classroom as they come at the end of the day with their

I have tried routines, breaking the lesson into several activities including
movement, finger play, songs, coloring and listening to a story.

settling them.

Any suggestions.?

 I will post them as a Hit if someone asks me to.
