I have a student functioning at a Pre K/K level. His mom and I have butted heads a lot. She plays the blame game with me and can be very aggressive. With that said, I feel like I need to grin and bear it and write a negative comment about behavior this quarter. I feel like 1.) I owe it to her to hear it 2.) document for next year's teacher and 3.) document his behavior in a regular ed class because we're working to have him moved for next year into a self-contained room. I have communicated with Mom, but she doesn't support me. His behavior is out of contol. He's almost maxed out in Resource, and when he's with me my class falls apart. He wasn't like this in 1st grade. However, this year he's received 1's in conduct from his specials teachers, so it's not just me experiencing the change. He is misbehaving as a means to cope with the work being too difficult (by a landslide ) He is loud, aggressive (only once this quarter; I wrote him up), and has turned into the class clown. He will do anything and everything to disrupt class so he doesn't have to try and so I can't hardly teach. How would you word this to a parent that can be just...mean? BTW, I have him on a behavior contract that I send home nightly, so Mom is aware of some of the things going on, assuming she reads them.
