Behaviour In Class

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by teaching-assistant, Jan 24, 2012.

  1. We have a boy aged 5 in reception class who started in Sepetember, every day since he started he has had bad behaviour it can range from throwing his snack around the classroom, disturbing lesson to pushing other children around. We've tried all different things to stop this behaviour, sending him out of the classroom, he cannot sit with the other children on the carpet so he has he's personal space. He isn't allowed in the toilets with the other children in the class and isn't allowed play time outside unless he stands by the teachers side even then he will run off. But he still carries on doing these things
    He seems to enjoy being told off and will smile while you are doing this. We have notified the parents and everyday they get told what he does.
    Has any one got any ideas of what we could do?

    continue to segragate him if it is necessary, but stop telling him he has behaved inapprpriately. Simply place him away from the others when he misbehaves. Do not remark on his behaviour and reduce verbal interaction with him to the minimum. If and when he does anything good - even if its not doing something unacceptable, then praise him, chat to him and give him loads of attention. The moment he returns to the poor behaviour, stop interacting with him. It may take some weeks, but if you're consistent and there are no serious issues at home, causing his behaviour, things should improve.
