Hi guys, Am just after a bit of advice, have a pupil in my class who struggles to focus and consequently is quite disruptive and can be quite vindictive to other children. I feel I have tried to be very fair, giving him warnings, choices and eventually sending him out. However, he comes back and disrupts again straight away. Also when he does make the right choice, it lasts for about 5 minutes! I have tried praising him up for even the smallest thing he does right, but he really can't maintain it! I'm on my own with the class most of the time so his disruption is quite unmanageable. However I feel i'm being negative with him, in sending him out and wondering if anyone could suggest a more positive approach. He doesn't respond to things like earning ticks for free time as he starts to see it as his given right to have that and assumes he can take that time at his own choosing and for how long. So am not sure a reward system completed by monitoring behaviour will be effective. Please help, i'm getting home very tired and worn out from this now!!
