Siblings
I noticed that there were a pair of twins in the course. The twins would sometimes act out together and make fun of other students, I have reached out to the parents and they continue to bully other students. I have written them up numerously and it does no good, what else is there to do to keep the siblings out of trouble?

I do not think it is fair to separate siblings unless all other options have been exhausted. I would begin by scheduling a conference, including the behavior specialist, in order to express the problem to the parents and get some reinforcement at home, while also gaining insight as to why the behaviors are occurring. It is vital that the students and parents know that bullying is not tolerated and will face consequences.

This is a great idea, to get other people in the room for a conference with the parents. Even though the teacher has reached out to the parents, but actually getting them in for a conference can always go differently, because they are right there in front of you.

I agree with setting up a conference with the parents and if you only talking to the parents does not work I would have administration come in and talk to the parents

I would separate the students from each other when they are inside of the classroom. I would not allow them to work together on group projects. Each day that they go without misbehaving, I would reward them, and send home word that they have been behaving well.

I would have a teacher/ parent conference including the school counselor or caseworker to find out why twins are acting out and bullying other children. If necessary, I would also explain to the parents that the school has a "no bullying" policy which her twins may be separated in different areas of the school where they can't be together. Also they will suffer consequences such as detention, suspension or possible expulsion.

I would explain to them why their behavior is unacceptable and if they continue,you will be forced to take administrative action. If the behavior persists, I would go to the Assistant Principal and behavior specialist about your efforts and have them take it from there.

If I were in this situation. I would do exactly this. Let the students know that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated.

I would attempt to separate the twins with where they sit in the classroom where they cannot speak to each other during class. Additionally, I would try meeting with the students and finding out why they are doing it. If necessary, walk your class to their lunch and specials, and explain to other teachers (music, PE, art) that they are having problems and to keep them separated.

I would use positive reinforcement. Find what the siblings are interested in and find ways to reward them when they are showing great behavior.

It might be best to separate the twins and remind them that there are consequences to their actions.

As a twin I found it more beneficial to be separated my twin and I, I became an individual and independent from my sister. It was my mothers choice to separate us though, I think explaining the situation to the mother might help their coming years of schooling.

I feel that having siblings especially twins in the same class can be a lot. Personally, at a school I worked at we had a set of twin girls, but by request of the mom they wanted them in separate classes. Since they are identical twins and it is like a stereo effect in the classroom. I would try to talk to the parents and try to get their opinion on the situation and see if separating the twins into different classrooms might be the best option.

I would say try to work out possible solutions with the parents first. Bring up the idea of separating them in class, or even switching classrooms if their parents think that would be best for them. If this does not bring results, I would suggest talking to the principal or VP, especially because bullying is involved.

I believe a conference is the first step to resolving this issue. Bullying should not be tolerated and administration should be aware of any issues that are present. I would also separate them into different table groups so disruptions are being made less between the two.

i would separate the twins. it is good for both of them not to be near each other. they seem to instigate each other. i would start a chart on them which will be used to help keep track of their behaviors. i would also call for some assistance from the guidance counselor. they might be able to have more insight or more ideas to try to correct the behaviors.

If I have exhausted my resources via parents and written notification , its time to crack down. Be kind and explain the rules, consequence is separation. Maybe have some sort of reward system which they will be losing privileges. Special projects on bulling that the parents need to sign so they are aware and empathy mini lessons. I'm not sure how easy it is to remove a student from the class but that would be in the top solutions.

I would separate them from each other as much as I could. Perhaps move their desks on opposite ends of the classroom and change their lunch spots to different tables.

well you can split them up in class so they do not talk to each other. Maybe even have one removed from the class.
