We have been in school for two weeks now and it is very clear that one of my students is not ready for Kindergarten. Now we must convince mom or come to a compromise. This student is a little boy who just turned 5 in June, but he looks like a three year old. He looks very young for his age. He is about as tall as my 3 year old. He is very immature. He is cute as a button and he knows it. He likes to show off. The older kids in the school like to play with him and try to pick him up because he is so small. He has been in an Early Childhood special ed preschool and has moved at least three times that I know of since 2007. Mom decided he was ready for regular Kindergarten. This is what happened over the last two weeks. He crawls all over the carpet. He will not sit in his spot on the carpet or at the table. When we walk in the hall he is out of line and yells all the way. He is constantly touching things he shouldn't in the classroom. He is very impulsive. One day I lost him on the way to music, he decided he had to use the bathroom. 15 minutes later I got him to music. He crawls under tables. He spit his milk on the floor at snack. Refuses to his work, mainly because he can't do it. He blurts out in the middle of class, about his hairy back. Then he will show us his back. When he does use the bathroom it takes him forever because he plays in there. He also takes his shoes and pants off when he uses the bathroom. He was kicked out of PE three times. He also hits, kicks and spits on the other kids. Yesterday he climbed up on the table and started crawling down it at lunch. I can't turn my head for one second or something will happen. He is constantly singing. When I ask him to stop he looks at me and crosses his eyes. He can't write his name and can only count to 3. He only knows the colors green and yellow. He scribbles all over his paper. I can go on and on. He reminds me of a preschooler or younger. By the end of the day I am worn out. He takes so much of my energy and time. To make things worse the rest of the class needs so much help. There are at least 4 that have no idea how to write their name. I have a very low class. So when I am trying to help someone else he is out of his seat or under the table. Mother insists he is ready. He does so good at home, so she claims. She is not very happy with me. The other day she suggested that I start a behavior program for him so he could work for a prize. This is what they did at his last school. We are having a meeting with mom this coming Wednesday. I am a little nervous. My Principal told me to be prepared to tell how he is in class. I have been writing down daily what he has been doing and what he can't do. I don't think he belongs in my class, but I don't know what they will do. He is too old for our Preschool class. The Principal said they might even suggest half days. Does anyone have any advice? Has anyone had a student like this?
