        At the beginning of the year I let the students sit wherever they wanted ( 7th graders) but I told them that they would be moved if they misbehaved. First day of school I set the tone by letting them know my expectations for their behavior and I stuck to it. I got to know the parents of my naughty kids and cultivated a relationship with them. If your lessons are interesting and you sell it to them, you will have no trouble. Don't sweat the small stuff. Kids need wiggle room. If you keep stopping to correct minor issues you will lose them and the behavior will get worse. If they misbehaved just redirect and move on. Lectures don't work. If you need to talk to a student do it outside the classroom preferably between periods or at transition time if you teaching elementary school. Keep the lessons moving and know your kids. Learn their names quickly. Many kids misbehave because they don't understand what you are asking them to do so make sure they understand your directions and that they are able to do what you are asking them to do. If not regroup, restate, scaffold so your students can be successful at what you want them to do. Always stay on your feet and walk around the classroom. I hope this helps. Good luck!
