reprimanding a student in front of the class

Hello,

I teach 4th grade and I was wondering if it is ok to reprimand a student in front of the class? When I am teaching, if a student continues talking or disrupts after I have stated the expectations for behavior, I will say their name in front of the class and write their name on the board. In front of the class, I tell the student that they will have to see me at recess. Is this ok to do?

Choose to misbehave in public equals choose to be reprimanded in public.

One of my 4th grade teachers set up a great system with his students... that if they do not follow a procedure, he will walk over (while continuing to teach) and puts a post it on the offending student's desk and says..."That's one." If the student accumulates 3 "strikes" then there is a consequence.

Depends on what you mean by reprimand. I just write their name on the board, make a tally mark or erase a letter off the word "RECESS". They know who the culprit is without me having to humiliate them.

When I sub, I have the student write their name on the board and then show me their notebook (they will sometimes try to write a fake name up there!) so I can double check their identity if I don't know them already.

My DS's teacher used to chew him out (screaming and yelling) in front of the class, for supposedly lying when he claimed he didn't understand something (he really didn't). I had major issues with that woman and wrote a 3 page letter to the Superintendent, the Principal, and the Board of Ed to get him removed from her miserable class.

If the child doesn't want to be reprimanded in front of the class, they shouldn't misbehave in front of the class!

I try to keep most of my discipline respectful; however, if I send a child to the bench/tag board/name on the board, the kids already know it's coming because they know the child is misbehaving. I simply say, "Joey, you have tag." or "Susie, that's 5 minutes on the bench." and move on.

Yes... I say things like...
"Johnny, that's not a safe thing to do" (running in room)
"Brian, please stop making that noise." (distracting others)
"Tommy, what are you supposed to be doing now?" (off task)
"Susie, this isn't group work. Please stop talking and keep your eyes on your own work. If you cannot get your work done where you are, you can move to the round table." (talking)
"Philip. I have warned you twice to stop X. Next time, I'm going to have to (call your mother, put a note in your file, send you back to your desk... insert applicable consequence here.)

...and sometimes in a stern tone or loudish voice.

Some parents or even silly administrators expect us to do all of our disciplining in the hallway in private. I love one of your comments that you will discipline in public if the misbehavior was in public. That is my policy from now on. If a child misbehaves in private and it affects no one else, I will discipline them privately. I think that might amount to one hallway discussion NEVER.

I used to take kids out in the hall to reprimand and then I had a crazy mama who came in and said I put my hands on her child when we were out in the hall. Now I want witnesses at all times! Of course she made all this up because she was mad because her dearheart was suspended for three days for stabbing another kid in the stomach with a pencil. (not just a poke -- it was bad)

Fortunately for me, I had the sister in my class (we didn't know they were related) and she told the mama that I would never put my hands on a child because I never even raise my voice. (She also told me at the end of the year that she thanked God for putting me in her life. Talk about a sweet child. But lawsy what a crazy mama!) The boy was in the juvenile system shortly thereafter.

For therapeutic reasons, I would like to continue the list of things that you can't do.

1. Take a pencil, break it in half, and give half to each whining child who thinks the pencil is theirs.

2. Say "Well, come here and let me stab your finger so you can write with blood," when they say they don't have a pencil.

3. Sing "If I Only Had a Brain" while waiting for someone to come up with an answer. (You can hum it, though, since they probably don't know the tune.)

4. Write on the board "Do not ask me any stupid questions."

5. After a child types a story and comes up to you and says "Should I print it?", you are not allowed to say, "No. I want you to leave it right there in the computer so that after school, when I turn into electricity, I can crawl in there and read it."

Ok I might have to admit for a second I was thinking that #1 was the answer to my lost pencil problem- I really get annoyed when they (first graders) are whining that they know that pencil is theirs when they are pretty much all the same because they come from the "sharpen" pencil can!! But my favorite was #5!!

The ONLY time I don't reprimand in front of the entire class is when I need to have a "heart to heart" with a few students to get to the bottom of something that's not quite as easy to deal with. This happens in the hall - my door open, and very easily in view of several other classes. If I didn't do it in front of the class- I would never have time to teach!
