What are your tips, tricks, etc. for handling the class clown? I work with students in a small group setting of 5-6 kids. I have two class clowns in two separate groups. With one of them, the rest of the group doesn't go along w/ him. They're more annoyed than anything else & fortunately do not feed off of his foolishness. With the other group, the class clown just sparks most of the others to act the same way. This clown is the perfect student when no one else is around, but when others are present, he has to get all the attention & show how "cool" he is. My consequences are as follows: 1) Warning 2) Take away sticker(s) 3) Stay after class to write, "I will not distract the group" sentences. 4) Talk with their other teacher to come up with another consequence.
