This is part of an email I got from my son's first grade teacher today.:
"At the start of Centers, he hit another child in the stomach and was asked to immediately move his name to the red --stop light. (behavior traffic signal.) He had a fit that he shouldn't have to move his name to the Red light. Because of his dangerous behavior, the automatic consequence is to trade me his Recess. I explained he could use the time with me (and others) during recess for an "unfinished work club." He hardly got anything finished during Recess because he spent so much time speaking to himself in a robotic language. As Recess was over, I announced whatever work was unfinished, would be saved for tomorrow's "unfinished work club." He went into a rage, threw a chair at me, and then threw a handful of pencils."
He never acts like this at home. What should I do?
