"Take a Break"
Old 10-07-2012, 12:14 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a student who has a one on one associate for behavior. The resource teacher, his associate and the behavior consultant are worried that when he gets frustrated and is told "you may do ______ or you may ask for a break" that he's not asking for a break and continues to escalate until he's tearing up my room.

There has been a recent conversation that maybe he doesn't want to take a break because he sees that as a negative thing in my classroom. I tried to defend that taking a break is not a negative thing- it's a time for a student to remove himself/herself from the situation to calm down and get his/her body under control, then he/she can return to the activity.

But, just in case I need to change my wording with the rest of the class, does anyone call "take a break" something else??

Thanks!
