I have a student who started in our Kindergarten classroom about three or four weeks ago. In the beginning he was very shy, but has changed significantly over the weeks (doesn't everyone? He is also chronically absent/late; he'll usually be absent for two days, then comes in at about 10:30 the next day, absent the next day, 10:00 arrival, etc. (School begins at 8). I did talk to the mother, and she said she is going to try and get them to school closer to 8. Because of this, he does not have too good of an idea of our classroom procedures/routines. We did go over the rules, behavior plan, etc. during the first couple of days he was there, but now it seems as if he could care less. He constantly talks at inopportune times, which usually gets a lot of the other kids going, and will not listen when I ask him to stop. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
