We've probably all done it at some point. Today, I let one boy have it like I never did w/ anyone before. EVERYTHING was a complete joke to this boy. But I don't have time to give him the silent treatment or some other tactic. I work w/ him only 30 min & then he's back to his own room. Here I am being very serious & telling him how he needs to take his learning seriously & he literally laughs & even MOCKS me! I can't recall a time a student did that. Not listening, yes, but MOCKING! The one thing I said that let him know I was serious was when I said I may talk to his classroom teacher Mr. __, then he said sorry a few times quickly. The teachers on either side of my room probably heard me for sure!
