Constant humming!

I have a child who continually hums while I teach or someone else has talking. Tried time out, sitting away from the group, silent lunch, talking with the parents, and problem solving with the student (she cried and said that I was picking on her).

Please help- I am thinking this is a power struggle for her.

Sensory Issues?

I had a child who constantly hummed and sang. She has a sensory integration disorder. I have found offering her times to sing (group sing along to word family songs or quite time after recess) while at circle she can use a "stress" ball to help attend. There are other strategies you can use, if it is more than a power struggle. Does she exhibit the same behaviors at home?

I have 3 students who do the same thing. Drives me nuts. This class is my most immature group of 3rd graders I have ever had. They just don't get it. I really don't think that they realize that they are doing it.

Power Struggle

I do think it is a power struggle. She actually gave me the middle finger at a conference with her mom. I was floored and the mom didn't say a word!

uscgrad90 ...we must have the same class!!

The hummers in my class have no clue they are doing it. It drives me insane, however I do not say anything until another student complains.

afmom2boys~ I sure hope you said something to the student! WOW!

Wow... If she did that in front of her mother with no consequence, I'm sure that it is a power struggle because she is not used to structure. I worked in a school last year where I was actually attacked by the same kid 4 times. He would jump on me and start scratching me and even left scars. He didn't get in trouble once. The office didn't even keep him out of my room! If kids have not consequences, they will try to find anything they can do to get a rise out of you! It's super annoying though! I will mention that I don't work at that school or even in that district anymore! Thank goodness.
