What do you do with that one special friend? I have one student who has no respect for the classroom rules. He yells out answers and comments. Anytime he sits next to his friends on carpet he talks to them the entire lesson. If I ask him to move, he does so, but throws a huge dramatic pout about it disrupting our learning. So now instead of moving him, I ask his friends to move. Again this is not acceptable to him, and he throws a huge dramatic pout and moves himself away from the group and I have to get him to refocus and move back to carpet. He pushes other students when they are in his way and gets upset if he is next to someone in line he does not like. Today he decided it was ok to throw another girls book bag on the floor and stomp on it. He has never talked to this girl ever and she does not talk to him. I have had trouble with him since day 1 and have let the parents know what is going on. Mom got upset back in Nov, and belamed his behaviors on me and I must be the problem and his tantrums should not be included in his behavior report. I wrote her an email explaining I am here to support him and now she is super nice to me. We have not talked about behaviors since. I wrote her today about the book bag explaining he had a really good day except for the bookbag thing. However I am sure she will spin it back on me or make an excuse for him. Anyways, any tips on how to deal with him? I offer positive praise, given him stickers, etc. Nothing seems to phase him.
