I just got a new student this week and the vast majority of the time he is gawking at other things in the room or fidgeting around in his desk. Then, when I give him instructions he is vocally irritated and insists that I did NOT give any instructions even though the rest of the class has already completed the tasks I asked. :huh: Do you have any strategies or ideas of what could help? He is socially okay with recess situations but in academic and classroom situations he rarely participates unless he is bragging about how much he already knows relative to the rest of the class. I am the only third grade teacher so I could use some advice! :unsure: Thank you!
