Ask yourself is it you? Is it the make up of the class? Have you spoken with their classroom teacher if they are experiencing the same behaviors? Sometimes it's their classroom teacher if they lack disciple and organization in their own room. Speak with the art and music teacher if possible, are they having the same problems. What are they like at lunch and recess? Art, music and physical education teachers at the elementary level know what teachers in their building have classroom management and which ones don't since they see them all. Have your administrator observe you teaching this class for solutions. I have been teaching 24 years and every year I have a class that can not following the same lessons as their peers. I look for help from my colleagues and principal. I document, send emails (cc principal in them) to parents. I do give the principal a heads up before I communicate with parents so they are not blind sided. Time and patience.

They are a rowdy bunch this year, VPK-K are wonderful, 1st and 2nd, are pretty good. 3rd are a little rowdier, 4th and 5th are horrible, and 7th grade has no problems. Our principle has to go in to 4th and 5th grades the classroom and have talks with them. The teachers are having troubles in the classrooms too, and they are crazy in the lunchroom too ... I'm used to teaching High school ESE and I've done that since 2000, so this is my first year doing PE, and my last!
