You have excellent questions that get to the heart of your philosophy of a teacher; how do I help this child now that I am getting to know her better? You are already developing empathy for the rule breaker by asking that one important question. Well done.

Now, I do need to ask you one question. You said:
Quote:
What do I ignore, what do I call her out on?
Why would you ignore any of these behaviors? She is doing some research right now. And if you have applied logical consequences, she should learn that you have boundaries and will respond with consequences when those boundaries are crossed. If you haven't and you've ignored these behaviors, then what has learned through her research? And what, now, has the potential to happen?
