Clique
I have one student who is always wanting to hang with her best friend in the class but she is rude and gets an attitude when other girls also want to hangout with them. She is always trying to leave other girls out and they get hurt. How could I handle this?

When working with students that want to pick their groups and or partners, I've learned that the Jigsaw method of grouping them works well. You can have them do the first part of the activity in the group that they are already in. After they've completed this first part, go around the room and point to each student. When you point to the student, they each count one number starting with 1 to 4. They then split up and reorganized into the corresponding number. In other words, all the 1s get together, all the 2s and so on.

I agree with you and this is what I would do if I were in this situation. This gives everyone a chance for new partners.

I agree with a solution of trying out the Jigsaw method. This way, everyone in the class will be in different groups and will give the students a chance to be with different students so the teacher doesn't have to single one student out.

I would have a conversation with both of the young girls; the mean one would have to work with other student's in the class while her friend show try to convince her mean friend to talk with other students as well so that they both won't get into trouble. Tell the mean one that being rude is a form of bullying, which is not tolerated. Ask her "How would you feel if someone shunned you away like you did other people?"

I feel that if you separate her from her BFFs, she might respond to some positivity. Try consistently grouping her with students that are not in her clique.

Maybe try and introduce the student to other friends and maybe she will learn that having multiple friends is good.

Explain to the mean girl that she has to be nice to everyone and why her actions are wrong. Sometimes they dont know they are in the wrong until they are told!

I would have a class lesson on appropriate social settings, like friendships. I would also talk individually with the student and explain that the class is an all inclusive environment.

I would pull this student to the side and try to figure out why she is acting like this. I would let her know that she is hurting the other students' feelings and that her behavior needs to change or there will be consequences.

I would pull the student aside and speak with her about the consequences of not including the other students. I would definitely do group work and possibly separate the two girls who are best friends, by doing so this allows for other students to work together. Ultimately it's a respect that the child lacks towards her peers.

Try creating designated pairs, partners, and groups for group work. This eliminates the possibility of cliques and allows for students to interact with their peers that are not their "friends."

I would call her parents and see if they can talk to her about it and see if this works and if not just tell the other girls to ignore her.
