Last week i started my first ever teaching position. I took over a Year 3/4 class four weeks into the school term and having problems with one student in particular.
This student is very disruptive in class, constantly calling out, swearing at other students and making rude comments, pushing other students, refusing to do work etc etc.
I have implemented the school behaviour plan but find that it doesn't work with this student, he simple doesn't care when he gets in trouble. It seems to me as though he is looking for attention, whether it be good or bad. I have tried ignoring him but the behaviour will just escalate until i HAVE to acknowledge it.
I am hoping for some suggestions or tips, things i can try with this student to hopefully improve his behaviour! If u have any similar stories i would appreciate u sharing as i am very new to this and will take all the help i can get!
Sorry this is so long, its been a stressful day! Thanks in advance
