Day 6, and I need help. My class and I have already been through so much. The higher ups decided not to hire a new Kindergarten teacher and have 1 kinder class [me] and 1 K/1 combo-in an effort to make the k/1 combo run more smoothly, admin picked the highest kindergarteners that had preschool experience to place in there (their words) So I started the year with 19 cute, excited kiddos with a variety of needs. By the 3rd day, we had a high enough enrollment that they had to get a new k teacher and shuffle students around. When admin came to ask about who should be moved out of my room to the other class- they cast aside many of my students because of their EC status, lack of English, and red flags-until they found a few to move over that would be good for the other kinder teacher since she had "never taught kindergarten." This is the start of my 3rd year in K, and admin says it's a compliment to my classroom management and structure. Mmmm. They give me more credit than I deserve. I'm going somewhere with this. In all of this, my students have done a great job learning rules, procedures, and the fun of kindergarten. But, one student needs something extra. This student cannot sit on the carpet without rolling around, giggling, and yelling out. If I ask him to sit in his chair, he will for a few and then try to wander around the room. Every hour or so he will repeat something over and over like I want my mamma. I want to go to the playground. I need my juice cup. I need my milk. Etc. If I ignore....he gets louder and yells. If he needs anything he yells. And just repeats it over and over until someone responds. While I'm teaching, he wants to yell about his cup, or get my attention by saying hello, hello! I give a general statement to the class remember if you need something -raise your hand, and then I can help you. Over and over. If he doesn't get his way, he cries and screams. This is a struggle for me, and all students involved. I've tried praising students around him. We are required to use class dojo, so I've tried points, I have some fidget toys he can use when he has spent all the time he can on the carpet without disrupting - But he usually uses those to disrupt more. We do brain breaks, and switch tasks often as my students just aren't ready for centers but can't do whole group for long! Hes even gotten some natural consequences -not listening to directions so he doesn't get as much time to do something as everyone else because I won't let him do something until he listens fully to the instructions. He was interested in some stickers I had on my table- so I even offered up those if he could show me how we did x. 5 seconds later he didn't care -like the points. Anytime he is successful, I praise, praise, praise! I know it's only the 6th day and believe it or not there have been small improvements. But I need some suggestions if you've got them. I'm also at the point of wanting to lock my door- I've been asked to share all of what I've planned (with the k/1 teacher at first and now with the new k teacher since they had never taught it....) and now I have people popping over to borrow books, master copies, asking questions, etc. While I'm teaching and any focus or groove we've gotten into is instantly ruined when a visitor comes in.
