If we used 'pueri placidi docemus', then the calm boys what be the subject. The calm boys are taking the place of the direct object, so the words must have the accusative endings. 'Pueros placidos' is the plural accusative ending (for 2nd Declension), so that is the correct answer. Endings are very important in Latin.
I hope that makes sense.
