Help! Student Teacher and a Busy Student!

I am a student teacher this year and things are going great for the most part! I seem to be doing well in the classroom management area, except for one student. Both the classroom teacher and I, are at a loss for what to do. He is never on task, always talking, disruptive, and essentially does whatever he wants. It is really disrupting the flow of class. Any suggestions on what we can do to help solve this problem?

Brain Breaks

I had a student like this last year in my classroom, and my teacher gave him five minute brain breaks during lessons. When he became very antsy, my teacher gave him "the look" and he was allowed to go to the back table and pick an object out of the brain break box. These objects included a stress ball, play-doh, word searches, etc., and the student played with these until he calmed down. When he joined the class on the carpet again, he was able to pay attention for a longer period of time.

Behavior Chart?

Does he have trouble self-regulating? Maybe try a behavior chart? It can be incredibly helpful for some kids to have a concrete reminder of expectations and a gauge of how they're doing.

That's a great idea! How old was the student you did this with? I am in a third grade class, do you think that this could be just as beneficial?

Behavior Chart

Yes he does! I feel like I am constantly telling him what he needs to be doing and how he needs to be acting! In every direction I give he finds something else to do. For example, in physical education the teacher specifically told him not to touch the poster on the wall, the next minute she said had had ripped it off the wall straight down the middle. I think a behavior chart may help!

My student was in kindergarten! But, yes brain breaks will work with any age! You might just have to switch up the objects inside the box to apply to the age level. Allowing him time to himself will help him calm down and release some energy (he could even do jumping jacks in the back of the classroom or stand behind his chair instead of sitting during the lesson!).

Okay great! Thank you so much. I definitely will try this and since he cant seem to sit still this might work out perfectly! As long as he doesn't use the objects in an inappropriate way!

Why do the two of you posting have almost the same user name?

Sometimes behavior plans lose their novelty and need to be changed up. Maybe involve him in coming up with reward choices. I agree with brain breaks and also would suggest a band on his chair legs so he can move. I have these for any child who wants it and for some it really has helped a lot.
