I have a really peachy class this year I have one student in particular who is giving me a real workout! I need some help and suggestions from anyone who has dealt with a similar situation or has some ideas for me. First of all, I teach 4th grade. I have had incident after incident this year with this particular student. He is diagnosed with ADHD but parents are unwilling to medicate and also unwilling to retain him although his behaviors are clearly developmentally inappropriate. Let me give you some examples of behavior I see on a nearly daily basis: * Leaves his seat to come up to ask questions during instruction * Claims any property found on the floor or near his desk, including my own, and destroys it * Takes things from others' desks and destroys them * Touches people/things as he passes by, sometimes using objects, and routinely destroys papers in the hallway as he walks by them * Falls/rolls/crawls on the floor * Saves and hoardes bits of trash like broken pencils, food wrappers, etc. * Makes strange noises/voices during quiet work time, instruction, and tests Today I had just about had it when I saw him with MY FAVORITE PEN taken apart and making ink blots on his homework! Here is what I have tried so far, all to no avail: * I have had discussions with him about his behavior. He responds and seems respectful and understanding until two minutes later when the behavior returns. * Kept him on classroom management system, which is token economy. He did not make the connection between behavior and rewards/consequences. For example, on prize day when students buy things from my store, he asked multiple time if he could have money (he was out of money because of behavior fines). * Removed him from the money system and created a behavior plan. The plan was more for the protection of other students. He was allowed one warning during classtime, then continued disruptive behavior resulted in removal from the classroom. A second disruption after his return would result in removal from the classroom for the day. This worked for about 3 weeks before he was being asked to leave the classroom at least once per day, and this has been going on for the last 2 weeks. Clearly, not working any longer. * Most recently, I taped a short list of goals (in seat, hands/body to self, working) and a sticker chart to his desk. I told him when his sticker chart was filled he would get a prize. We're on the 3rd day and he's only earned one sticker for meeting goals during classtime. Please help me! I feel like I'm going to dive off the deep end.
