Help! I have to write up a ton of anecdotal notes on one particular behavior child in my classroom. I was never taught how to write one exactly so I need some help. I'm not exactly sure what to write or how to write it. Some examples of the child: The 5 year old child continuously kicks and screams for hours when he's unable to have his way. The child is in a bad environment at home living with his stepmother. Unable to see his biological mother and father incarcerated. The child wants to eat 2 or more times for breakfast as well as lunch and if he's told no then he will throw himself on the floor and cry loudly while kicking and screaming. When the stepmother is contacted because of his behavior she immediately yells at him and puts him done. As soon as the child hears her voice over the phone he freezes up to a point where he barely speaks. He'll just stand their. He also does the same when she comes to the school to pick him up if he contiunes to act out. I'm really not good in wording letters, so if anyone can give me an example or have a website with examples, I'll gladly appreciate it.
