Student Teacher?

Are you going for certification as a teacher and this is your classroom to learn how to be a teacher?

First things first, how is the students academics? What are is academic needs? Is he just a behavior issue or is academics an issue?

Second, it sounds like he needs to move. So get him some way to move. Break up his work periods with movement breaks, it could be as simple as giving tasks around the classroom (go get the markers, go get the glue) to starting at one minute of work time, to 5 minutes of movement time.

What about class movement breaks, get the entire class doing jumping jacks or gonoodle dances, they are 5-6 y/o kinders, they can't sit and get for hours like an older kiddo.

Is this child on an IEP? If not is in the referral process?
