    I have a third grade student who hits every day, when I am not looking. He actually doesn't seem to hit that often at his recess, though he does occasionally hit during recess. He mainly hits when I take the kids to the restroom, when we go to PE, during PE, etc..., so this really could be an attention getting behavior.

    Ms. Garcia Have you tried assigning him some leadership roles?

    Hello,

    what do you think about writing lines for punishment. I mean writing a sentence 100-500 times in 2-5 days?
