I have a student who is a class clown. He disturbs the others at all times throughout the day by making noises, talking inappropriately, blowing in faces, etc...When I ask him to stop the behaviors he does but then restarts as soon as I turn away. I have found the best thing is to send him to the back corner of the carpet away from touching distance of the others or send him to his own desk instead of allowing him to stay at the table with the others. Mom is furious that I would isolate him. What would you do with a student like this? I'm open for ideas that will allow for my other children to learn and stay safe.

  • Flacka If he has no boundaries at home then he doesn't act like this at home because he can do what he wants when he wants. If he wants attention, isolating him will make it worse. As Judy said, when you are on the rug, keep him right in front of...See More
