Reflection: Rules and Consequences How Do We Measure? Comparing Weight Day 1 - Section 1: Problem of the Day


I had a student with severe problem behavior today.  He came up to the board when it was not his turn and kept moving objects around the board.  It got to the point where the whole board locked up because there were too many people touching it.  We ended up having to abandon the Problem of the Day.  I had the students return to their seats and we worked through the paper together.  While we did this, I was able to get assistance for this student who ended up needing to exit the room to get himself together.  I then had the students come back up to the carpet to do the rest of the whole group activity.  It was quite backwards from my original plan, but it did work.  I try to keep my lessons going through problem behavior, but it sometimes gets to a point where the students are not learning anyway.  Abandoning the Problem of the Day helped get the rest of the class refocused.  I also gave positive reinforcement in the form of praise and "feathers" (our schools form of a token economy).
