Hello everyone. I am currently teaching ESY preschool and it's my first time as a teacher. I am going to be teaching high school next year which will be a whole other thing. I have a question about behavior. I have one little girl who is usually so sweet and cute but sometimes she will get very upset and start screaming, kicking, yelling, etc. If we tell her, "Ok, it's time for circle time!" she'll usually say, "No, thank you, teacher." When we insist she then begins screaming and crying. Sometimes she'll cry for a few minutes, then suddenly be completely fine but will run away to where she is supposed to go. Today I spent five minutes with her in the classroom as she ran around screaming and crying about her shoes. She didn't want to put them on and go to the bus to go home. It's because they were causing blisters. Anyway...if you haven't gathered this yet, she has autism. We give her multiple warnings about transitioning to other activities. Does anyone have any ideas about how to help her transition to new activities? Please help! I only have 4 days left but if I have another day like today I don't think I'll make it!
