Kids that are a problem in class. What do you do? --CAN YOU DO THESE THINGS? -Thanks
I'm not a teacher, but I am curious. There are several students in my son's class that seem to be in trouble everyday & are a disruption. I know back in the day things were handled differently, but I think things have changed. I know my son's teacher said she counts, but my son has never mentioned that. However, while he was helping out in another question he specifically said he liked that teacher because when the kids are talking she counts backward & the kids stop talking so they can listen. This particular teacher also said she had the same students in her class last year & it wasn't a pleasant year at all. So what are you all allowed to do?
THESE THINGS (back in the day):
1. You had to move your chair or sit in the back of the class.
2. You had to turn around & face the wall or stand in the corner.
3. You were sent to the office continuously if you were a problem.
4. You had to write a sentence 50 or 100 times.
5. A note was sent home obviously.
6. Your parent had to have a meeting with the principal.
7. If you were really bad then your mom or dad had to come & sit in class with you.
THANKS!: Thanks to everyone who responded! I became curious after a meeting with the Principal where I made the comment "Apparently these kids were a problem last year & I don't know how things are handled now, but back in the day when you were a problem you were sent to the office, & if bad enough your parent had to come to school with you. Now I don't know what those other parents are doing for their kids, but I'm willing to be here everyday in class for my son."
Now my son isn't the kid with a behavior problem. He's a great student according to his teacher "he's an excellent student & a role model for other kids." That being said he does have anxiety issues & the misbehaving students are a continuous disruption, & the teacher's response (yelling or raising her voice several times) has become an anxiety issue for him. I was curious how other teachers handle things. This teacher gives the students a check & says she will have the child write a note home about their behavior. I know that for 1 student it's not true because my mom takes care of him & I pick him up. I can immediately tell if his clip was moved & his folder is looked through for homework and such. Apparently they do lose recess & if it's several students they have to pick up trash or run laps. Either way it's not effective because the same students are getting in trouble almost everyday.
As for those with special needs children or have a child that needs accommodations I understand if there are behavior issues. I'm strictly referring to the ones who don't have issues that have to be handled a certain way. :)
