Here's my issue. I teach 4th grade and I have about 4 boys in my class that are driving me batty! I love them each and I push for good behavior from them, but having them together can be downright toxic! They don't listen when they are together and they feed off of each other. I want to do more grouping in my class, especially in a way that allows me to work with these boys in a small group setting, and then work with others in a small group setting. The problem is, as soon as a go to a small group type of setting with any other students, these four are immediately off task. I don't group them together for this very reason, but it seems like no matter who I pair them with, they are going to be off task unless I'm standing there. I want to give my students more individualized instruction, but I cannot do that unless I can keep these boys under control when I am not there with them. I do have a behavior chart, there are both rewards and consequences, I have contact with all of their families. What else can I do so that ALL my students can receive the instruction that they need? Thanks.
