Please advise! I'm a TA and take an upper primary class for PPA once a week. I'm having problems with one boy in the class who has a bit of an attitude. One week he was very awkward and I sent him out; he spent a very dull afternoon on the floor in the HT office. Since then he has done as I have asked, but very slowly. 'Give x their ruler back' and it's like stop frame animation. His response to 'Sit down on the carpet, like everyone else,' is almost balletic. Am I being overly critical? Should I just be happy he's doing as I ask? I feel like I should know this but I don't.
