I have a student who taps and drums his pencil. He is in eighth grade and appears to use this to gain teacher and peer attention. We have had a parent conference to discuss his ongoing behavior and the mother reports he has done this since 2nd grade. The student will look directly at you and click his pen or drum his pencil to see the reaction of the teacher. I have tired to ignore him and this does not help. Any direction anyone can offer is greatly appreciated!! Thank you!!
