There are some days where I feel like my classroom is actually a zoo. I am a second year teacher and I have devoted so much of my time the second half of the school year to behavior management. As we returned in person, I gained 6 new students in January, 2 of whom have severe behavioral difficulties. Within 2 weeks, I had asked my admin for guidance to which I received none. Literally none. The coach never came when she said she would. She eventually showed and said she would help, did for a week, then did not come back. Here is what I'm working with. Title 1 school, 17 littles who all need me all the time. One who has anger issues, extreme defiance of (all) authority figures, and refuses to complete any type of work without an immediate reward. Another who is constantly putting down other students, then scream crying when someone responds back to her in any kind of unkind way. A third student who screams and cries any time I speak to them or do not speak to them... yelling when redirected but also yelling if I do not respond to his need right away. All three of these students constantly hold up our learning times with talking, playing, touching, yelling out, etc. And then 14 others who are learning from their behavior that probably looks way more fun. Of course, I feel for my challenging three because I know that they are struggling so much, but this is also way out of hand. Here is the issue. I have no consequences for these students. I have followed my schools behavioral documentation protocols and have been waiting on counselor observations for these students for FOUR WEEKS (which my P is aware of...) so this process is going no where. I communicate with ones parents every day and the other parents do not have any interest in working with me. Our day is JAM PACKED full of academics to prepare for testing with constant admin walkthroughs to monitor that academic tasks are being completed. My P has informed us to be teaching while they eat breakfast, teaching skills during our 30 min SEL time (which I haven't been) and also cutting their recess and snack time to 15 mins. This little time in our day really provides no time for consequences. Sometimes I have them practice a behavioral task during recess (as a logical consequence) and they complete it perfectly, only to do it wrong again as soon as recess is over. I feel so bad for my other students who really try to meet classroom expectations that these three students who do not try get the same privileges as them. Of course, when we have a fun task they will not get to participate if their behavior has been poor, but this is not often enough to be considered a reliable consequence. My whole class behavioral management system is a private sticker chart and it works very well for my 14 others. These 3 have their own stamp chart detailing every part of their day with a reward when they receive 7/13 stamps. They have all met that goal a few times, so I know it is possible! I have 28 days left in the school year and while I know that isn't many, I want it to be the best 28 days yet. TIA for any suggestions.
