I teach pre-k at a small church preschool. I have a student I need advice about. "Sara" (fake name) is great in the classroom in centers and does a great job in circle time. However in large groups like on the playground with others or at breakfast when we are with another class, she has issues. She hurts other students feelings by saying ugly things to them or saying they cant play or be part of her club. She told a friend who was proud of a new haircut that it looked like Gaston off "Beauty and the Beast". If someone does something to her like hits her or pushes her, whether intentionally or by accident, she hits or kicks them worse than what was done to her. The teacher she had last year constantly had her in time out. She also did not have a structured classroom, so she was always in trouble in class as well. I have really made an effort to keep her engaged in activities and be involved with her. I have also limited time out to worse case issues because I am not a fan of time out. Also, it doesn't work with her. She did better for a while but then regressed. I talked with her parents and we agreed on a sticker chart and rewards for good behavior at school and at home. I talked with "Sara" about thinking about her words before she said them. "Will this hurt someone's feelings? Will this cause me to lose my sticker"? This worked for a while, but is now no longer working and I find myself losing my temper, which I don't like to do. I don't think she can go all week and be rewarded on Friday, but doing a daily thing seems too much. One other thing... the other teachers are really quick to put her in time out on the playground and the afternoon staff do as well. Her mother told me she is always in time out when she is picked up. The other staff think I am too easy on her, but I'm trying to redirect negative behavior and praise good behavior. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
