Loud Lunch
I have a student that receives bad notes on his behavior at lunch. He disrupts other students and steals food. I have written notes in his planner and I have had discussions with his family about his disruptions. How do I proceed?

The class I am involved in utilizes "lonely lunch" when the students are unable to behave appropriate with their peers. It is important for the student to understand this behavior is not tolerated, and you could even pull this student away from the other students as it occurs to get your point across. The fact that is seems he has had no definitive consequences when this behavior occurs is only reinforcing it.

We also do this at my school. We have silent lunch and it seems to work well. If I were in this situation this is what I would do.

Silent lunch probably would be the best option in this case.

I would contact administration and try doing a lunch detention. The student needs to be made aware that there are consequences for his actions during the lunch period.

See if it gets any better. If it doesn't improve, talk to the principle and have a teacher parent meeting with him.

it is either the student sits alone in the cafeteria or they get sent to the office to have lunch in there. it is a constant behavior issue and it hasn't changed. it needs to have a different idea of what to do.

well maybe he is stealing food because he is hungry and doesn't have food at home. I would sit down and talk to him first then maybe have a conference with his parents.

If things continue to not improve, I would maybe think about having him eat lunch at a table alone and away from any other students. This will either keep him from disrupting or it will cause him to want to behave in order to be with his friends.

Why is he stealing food? Attention? Hunger? Bored?
First I would take a few mins and go into the lunch room and observe.
Once determined the why, then you can proceed
Hunger, ask for to have snacks
Attention, pair him up with a friend or have him sit alone
Bored, give him a task, such as : Wiping tables, extra reading book..

if you have taken to steps to let his parents know and the issue continues, I would advise that child that he or she will be eating lunch alone in the principles office if he or she is unable to act right at the table.

I'm pretty sure that multiple instances of this would result in a referral or a detention. You should always let students know that this is not acceptable. If he continues to do this he may need to have an assigned seat in the lunch room.

I would separate the child at lunch and make him sit by himself until he starts to act better towards other students.

Isolating the student from the other students may be an option. From reading your case, it doesn't seem like he has been truly reprimanded at all. Another thing to think about is why is he stealing other people's food? Does he not get enough food at home? Is he eating breakfast? Or is he simply acting out to be a bully? These are all important questions to get to the bottom of why he is acting out.

If it is possible, try sitting with the student during lunch time to observe his behavior and model appropriate lunch behavior. If this is not possible, discuss having him sit by himself at the end of the table but still with his class. Other wise, he can have lunch in detention or take away his recess. You could also have him write an essay or what is appropriate behavior in the lunch room and how he will make better choices.

I would make the student eat lunch alone. It is embarrassing for the student and hopefully it helps to correct the issue.

Since his behavior persist and his family knows about the issues, I would then pass the information to the counselor or caseworker for further evaluation.

At the school I volunteer at, we have a teacher in the lunch hall watching the students. She does not mess around with behavior like this so she gives them lunch detention, makes sure they are last, and she even picks out the lunch for them and normally is not the best lunch choice you can get. When she does this, we normally do not see that student mess around any more and they are well behaved. I know this sounds extreme, but it works and they respect you more after.
