Clip to ScrapBook #2

in the case of the child refusing to go to time out, I would probably then use a buddy teacher time out. I, like you, have also have that backfire on me (the child refusing to go), and when that happened, I would involve an administrator and contact the parents.


You might also try using time out sooner - before these students have a chance to really become upset and defiant. Rather than give students several reminders about calling out, give a break the first time. When I went to my first RC training, I heard something that really stuck with me - "the time out is the warning." By giving a student a break when you sense a child is at the very beginning stages of losing control or when he breaks the rule the first time, kids are set clear boundaries.

Good luck!
