I am a 1st year teacher and I need help dealing with a disruptive child. He looks for attention from the entire class. For instance today he was extremely loud, would not quiet down for anything and completely kept the other students from learning. He hits, touches and generally anoys the other student to the point that the other parents are starting to complain. I have tried interventions, including color change, think about it time out, positive praise whenever he is caught being good and talks with mom. He knocks over shelves, threatens to pull out or cut cords. I love him and I know there must be a reason for his behavior but I am at a loss as to how to deal with the behavior while keeping the other students and him safe and learning. I talked to mom who says he behaves the same way at home. We are in the 4th week of school and his behavior is worse than at the beginning and now some of the other students are beginning to act the same way. Help please!! Did I mention that this is a kindergarten class??? At close to my wits end.
