Cool Off

Clip to ScrapBook #10

is my keyword. I simply give students a small card (that says cool off and has a picture of snowflakes) and they go to the designated space. We have also designated "cool off" spaces in all of the special's rooms. In my room it is simply a desk (3rd grade). I'm working with our guidance counselor on some things to place inside the desk for a specific child who reacts similarly to what you have described.

We do not, unfortunately, have paras, behavioralists, etc. at my school. I have been struggling to come up with a plan to curtail this students ADHD and defiant behaviors while sticking to the RC model. This is my first year fully implementing RC (I have done Morning Meeting as well as some other portions in previous years) and overall it seems to have a positive effect on my class as a whole, but no effect on this child.
