Short background - I teach kindergarten and this year I am doing basically inclusion where I am the general education teacher in my classroom but I have a specialist or para in my room with me depending on the time of day. I'll have mostly gen ed. students and a small handful of special needs. My information sheet on one of my special needs students shows that he just gets up and wanders around, tries to play during instruction time, and when/if you redirect him he will scream and say no and maybe even bite/hit. Apparently in his class last year the law wasn't laid down for him. At open house the other day when I met him for the first time he was all over my room, on tables, pulling out every toy and leaving it there, would ignore me when I tried to talk to him. I've never had an experience with a student who was difficult to round up and sit down or even one that would bite others. Regardless of this student being special needs or not, how would you handle this in your classroom if you had a student that refused to sit down at the table or carpet and then maybe went to physical aggression? I don't want to be chasing this student around when I have kids on the carpet waiting to learn. Just looking for tips and advice and some new ideas. At a loss on this one at the moment.
