I am going to hope it was a movement break and not a "you were bad, so you go duck walk the classroom."

The student got in trouble at PE an had to around the classroom in the duck walk. The students told me the teacher does that if they get in trouble,
I just don’t know what to say
It wasn’t in her lesson plans to use as discipline ( I wouldn’t do it even if she did )

It might might just be light hearted fun way of getting a child to remember the rules. Kids that age are used to playing around imitating animals.
Or like the coach, telling a player to run three laps.

I see that this walk can be used as physical therapy for children walking/ standing situations. And can be used in physical fitness. Not an easy walk.

Not sure I will get on the ground to try it. Haha, well maybe once.

Wow... I'm almost speechless. For one thing, punishment rarely works well at changing behavior. (Some kids will actually enjoy walking like a duck and calling attention to themselves.) But more importantly, this seems to me to be a high-risk action to take on several counts. As a sub, I would not assign any kid that punishment. I firmly believe in not disrupting classroom structure and practice, but there are some limits. I wouldn't criticize it, I'd simply not do it.

Two things here: 1) if the boy got in trouble at PE, why is the Math teacher administering the punishment, and 2) as already stated, there are multiple problems with the walk like a duck punishment.

Iíve never heard of using walk like a duck as punishment, and canít imagine a disciplinary scenario in which Iíd view it as a viable option. What are people thinking?

This is a risky punishment.

This teacher better hope that a truly embarrassed student does not complain to parents, or this teacher will be spoken to by the Principal, if not the Superintendent.


No problem 40 years ago, but today is a different story.
