Class work
There is always this one student that is not focused on his class work. When it is time to do independent class work they always are off task either not doing anything or talking to the person next to them. It disrupts the class and they don't get their work done because the student is never on task. We have tried redirecting and working one on one with the student to make sure that they do their work.

Have an activity, like centers, lined up for students to do once they have completed their classwork. Once you have check a student's work to make sure it is completed, send them to their center. Once your student sees that everyone else who has completed their work is now on a different, more fun, activity, they will work harder to complete their work so they can be with the others.

Remind him prior to the start of independent work that he is to do his work quietly. If he does reward him with moving him up on classroom behavior chart or acknowledge that he is making good choices. If he continues moving him to a table that you are sitting at or next to you. But be quick to catch it so that he will not have enough time to disturb others. If he keeps disrupting class and ignoring warnings take away recess time and parent note home.

I would start by separating students that tend to talk to each other. The teacher may want to reconsider how the classroom desk is set up. The students may become more focused if they are in rows, with the desk separated.

Isolate that student, start with a warning and then either remove them from the classroom or put their desk against the wall !

I would say the next appropriate step of action would be to talk to the student privately in an appropriate time. Most of the time, students act out of insecurity or need for attention. Find the root of the issue. If all else fails, send the student to the counselor.

I think that if isolating the student, enforcing consequences, and changing desks around doesn't work, getting administration involved or a note home to parents may be the next step.

I would first separate this student from the others when it comes down to doing classwork. Put something in place when students are done doing work they can go do an activity quietly, once that students sees other children on to something more fun they will probably want to finish and do the same.

Make sure to make it known that the assignment is independent, quiet work for the students. If the student is still off task, try to make the situation a reward or reinforce system. Like after the students are don with their work they can get books to read, play on the computer, just different center type options. This way the student will see that if they get their work done they will be able to play in centers with their friends as well. So, the reward would be being able to play after getting the assignment done.

It sounds like that student and the class need to be reminded of the classroom rules. It's also possible that they're doing it for attention. I would suggest instead of isolating the students, move the people he's talking to away from him, to a different table. Do it quietly, don't make it a big deal to the class. If all else fails, contact the parent.

You can implement a reward system for the students that complete their work correctly in class. For example, if the students complete their work then they will be able to have extra time on computer games. It also may be helpful to find interests of the student and incorporating those into the assignments.

The student should be moved to a new location in the room or a positive behavior reinforcement system should be put into place.

I would have that student sit by his or her self because they are interrupting other students that are trying to do their work. If nothing seems to work I think having a teacher parent conference to see what the parents think you should do to help their child out.
