Starting the Day
I have a student that comes into the classroom and throws his backpack on the ground, comes into the classroom disrupting everyone. He doesn't get to work when he comes in the classroom, he won't stay in his seat and he insists on bothering other students. He is mainly this way when he first comes in in the morning. I am not sure the best way to handle this, any advice?

Give him responsibility. Put him in charge of policing the classroom for organization before the second bell. Have him make sure backpacks are in there proper locations.

I agree with this solution and this is something I would do if I had a student like this in my classroom. Giving him a task to do first thing in the morning, that gives him the distraction that he needs while also making him feel important, which may be something he wants to feel.

This is what I would do if I were in this situation. If he is in charge of making sure other students put their backpacks away and are on task then he will be inclined to do it too.

Try getting his attention when he arrives to avoid his disrupting the class. Offer him a small task to keep him distracted but feel important at the same time. If this works, try making the tasks consume less and less time so he has time to complete his morning work.

I would try speaking with the child independently before class, if this doesn't work contact the parent. Disciplinary action should be taken and the child needs to know their behavior isn't acceptable.

First, try to give him responsibilities, if that doesn't work contact the parents to make sure they are aware of his behavior.

My advice would be to remember to remind him that he must follow your directions. I would simply ask him why he is acting out. This may because he is witnessing family problems at home or he may be experiencing other problems. Maybe he just need a hear or need to be reminded of classroom rules. However, I feel those would be my first to steps in trying to better his behavior.

Maybe give this student a specific place where they can stand and write down any kind of morning message. Establish the rules that he will not be allowed to throw his backpack and needs to have respect for his belongings. Class dojo points are always good for completion of morning work as well. Once students hear the "ding" of a peer getting a point, it usually reminds them they need to stay on task.

In my opinion this is something that should be handled within the first few weeks of school. Many people have said to give the student a classroom job but I believe in doing so the student may feel like they are above the rules or other students. I think the teacher needs to enforce consequences right away. If the student has consequences from the get go of this behavior they may forget it or lessen it in the long run. I think it is important for the teacher to be consistent and not allow for special situations. Students need to come into the class, be seated and begin their morning work. Do not budge, continue with your teaching and address misbehavior later in the day.

I would sit down with the student and come up with some type of individualized morning routine with a checklist. Give the student special jobs to complete in the morning, such as making sure the morning work is passed out and putting the correct date on the board. Have the student check these 'to-do' items off of his specialized list. The last item on the list could be 'sit down and complete morning work'

remind him of the rules that are implemented in the classroom and let him know the consequences. Maybe have him be in charge of something in the morning to get his mind doing something else rather than disrupt the classroom

This seems to be a common trend - I think he could definitely benefit from a task.
