We are departmentalized at my school, so I have several reading students from other classes. One in particular baffles me because he (let's call him "Billy") is so busy staring at me that he barely gets any work done. When I do my reading rotation and it's his groups time for independent seat work, I require Billy to sit at a desk near my reading table so I can keep an eye on him. (He used to be allowed to stay with the group, but he would tease/poke/talk to/distract the other students and I was constantly having to stop reading groups and intervene or having a child come to me to complain about Billy) Anyway, all my students look/stare at me throughout the day, but Billy takes it to a whole new level. I promise that he spends at least 15 of his 20 minutes of independent work staring/sneaking peeks at me. At first I thought he was trying to see if I was looking at him so he could act up. Then I thought maybe he was doing it because he was amused and able to get under my skin. So as an experiment, I pretended not to see him, nor did I tell him to get back to work. I ignored him and kept doing my reading group. And...Billy stared at me the entire 10 minutes, his mouth hanging half open and seemingly hanging on to my every word. When the timer went off, he had barely done any of his (on level) work. So today after being told 3x to do his work and having his color moved, I finally turned his desk to face the wall. He STILL kept trying to turn around to sneak peeks/stare at me. He'd work a little, then stop and stare. Work a little, then stop and stare. When there was 2 minutes left on the timer, he stopped looking at me and tried to rush and finish everything. I don't think it's a matter of not getting attention at home because his parents had a very hard time getting pregnant after several miscarriages (Apparently I have a "Yes, please tell me your personal business during a parent-teacher conference" stamped across my forehead each year ) so he's especially cherished to the point of being a bit spoiled. He goes home on red almost everyday, but Mom says she can't bear to punish such a blessing from God. I talked to his homeroom teacher (who has him for a couple other subjects). The HR teacher said that she is overwhelmed with three E.D children (one has ODD, another severe autism and the 3rd has impulse control and anger issues in her class) so she is unable to give Billy much attention unless he's acting up. She also said he doesn't work in her class either. Any helpful tips to help this situation.
