So I have been subbing in the same Kindergarten room for 7 days, and the first 5 days were absolutely wonderful! There are only 15 students who come for the morning, and then I teach French to various classes in the afternoon. There is one little boy in the Kindergarten room who has some behavioural issues - essentially if he doesn't get what he wants or do what he wants to do - he gets mad. I was nervous about this boy the first week, but he was great all week! No problems - the Grade one teacher even said she was amazed at how he was doing! The honeymoon affect must have worn off, because yesterday it was like working with a whole new kid...first we played a dancing game in the morning where you have to freeze when the music stops playing. If you're caught moving, you have to sit around the table and cheer everyone on. This goes until everyone is out. We played this game twice. The first time this little boy got out, he sat down and cheered everyone on like he was supposed to. But the second time he got out??? Cue the big storm clouds and the biggest pout ever. He glared at me and then stormed out of the room. If he had been holding an object or something, he would have thrown it across the room. My question is - what do you do if a young student just storms out of the room or runs away? I did not have any Educational Associates in the room, so I didn't want to leave any of the children unsupervised. Luckily that day the student just stayed in the hallway and sulked, but today he actually ran down the hall, into the bootroom and outside!! I didn't chase him, but calmly told him it was time to come inside, and he reluctantly did so. I then took him to the office. He is so great when he is cooperative and on task, but as soon as something that he doesn't like (you know, like.....work, clean up time, etc.) he just gets angry and runs off. I'd almost rather he just have a tantrum and stay in the room... any advice?
