I could use some helpful suggestions. This year I have 25 students in my 2nd grade class. We are sitting on top of one another. And to top it off, I have some serious behavior issues. There's Miss Overactive who tattles on others and says they're bothering her yet she won't leave others alone. She constantly reads very loudly to herself--even during tests--despite frequent reminders to stop. She cannot remain seated. If there was ever a child I wanted to sneak a benadryl to, it's her. Then there's Mr. "It wasn't me!!" who huffs and puffs whenever he's reprimanded. Hit one of my boys at breakfast---told the principal that he "touched him with his fist." A bully all the way. One day I sent him to the office because I honestly thought he was going to hit me--he has hit his bus driver this year. Let's don't forget the one who likes to pick on Mr. "It wasn't me!!" He has recently moved here. Was on meds for ADHD but mom isn't very motivated to get him to a new doc. And he really needs them. And my newest child Mr. Temper Tantrum. The first time he had to pull his card (my current attempt at management) he let out a blood-curdling scream of "NOOOOOOOO" and started banging his head on his desk. When I told him to go sit in the hall to cool off he was rolling around kicking the wall and hitting it with his fists. This over-reaction to correction has continued and escalated so far Friday that I had to get the principal to remove him from my class because I could not teach. There doesn't appear to be anything specifically wrong with this child. His grandmother says he does it at home to get his way. Tough. I have one diagnosed with Autism and one undiagnosed who pick up and mimic the inappropriate behaviors of others. Then there's the usual cast of wigglers, talkers, etc that I can't get to because I'm trying to keep those first four from killing each other. Any suggestions on how to get this crew under control?
