One area he's having a problem with is Christopher's inappropriate expressions of anger and frustration. Apparently, he's been stabbing his paper with his pencil, tearing up papers, and turning over chairs. I guess I can see the teacher's point that these behaviors distract and even scare the other kids. To make matters worse, Chris refused to go to his predesignated "safe place" in the classroom when the teacher suggested it. The teacher was able to get him to go to the office (not a punishment, it's another "safe place") and when he came back, he was much calmer. Hmmm, maybe it's the walking that helps him to regain control?? I'll have to consider that.
Anyway, the teacher is going to talk with the other teacher on their team about a good time for a meeting. I'll let you know how it goes.
P.S. Chris is also dealing with killer seasonal allergies. The kid is stuffy and has red, itchy watery eyes. That can't be helping his disposition, either.
