I have a student who calls out - often... I know what your thinking: "Don't we all?"... but here's my question: Sometimes I think a student is trying to act out for whatever reason ex: to get attention... but I really don't think that she's trying to annoy anyone here. I honestly think that she is just a bright girl who has some impulsivity issues and it comes out because she gets excited about what she knows... but its starting to annoy me. She'll finish my sentences(!). She'll call out the names of the students as I am passing back projects, b/c she knows whose is coming next, she'll call out answers to questions I ask. There are only so many times that I can ignore it, say "I'm happy to call on someone who raises her hand", "please raise your hand", "the class can't hear me when you are speaking at the same time as me"... Sometimes I wonder if she even hears me saying these things, b/c she'll continue with what she was saying as I talk. It's starting to aggravate me and I don't want to lose my patience with her. What's the right approach here? Ignore? But she is a natural leader and others follow her lead. She really is delightful if this issue was not so very distracting to me. I tend to be more successful with natural consequences than other systems such as pulling cards etc... Any ideas??
