Calling Out for Attention
In a class I was an intern for, a young girl would randomly call out information. Clearly, the stunts were for attention, as she would talk about her personal life whenever given the opportunity (or not). The teacher of the class tried to combat by reminding the student to not share personal information and not to call aloud unless called upon, but the behavior persisted. Eventually, the child's behavior became a lot less mild after talking with counselors for some time. What else could be done for these types of behaviors?

I would suggest to continue talking with the counselors, but give her some one-on-one attention. It should lower the amount of attention needed if the teacher checks on her every so often. She may have things going on at home that cause her to act this way.

I think that I would have started with a conversation with the girl to see why the problem was happening and see if there were any resources I could provide. If it persisted I would inform the girl's parents about the disruptions. If the problem still pursued, that is when I'd involve school counselors.

Is the child have a rough time at home where she feels like no one is listening to her? Maybe explain to her that there is a time and a place to share personal stories, but now is not it. A kindergarten class I shadowed would have morning talks where each student was allowed to tell the class random personal information. It really helped get a lot of that energy out and it usually took no more than 8 minutes.

I agreed with this solution. I liked that it designated time for all the students to share anything new or exciting going on in their lives and handles the situation without singling out the individual student.

I like that the counselor helped and continuing to see the counselor may be the fix to the behavior.

I would look into other resources for the student and inform her parents about her actions in class.

Maybe something is going on at home that is causing this issue? I would maybe get ahold of the parents and see if there is anything that is making this happen if not maybe speak with the parents and the staff at school to see what can be done. Possibly counseling in or outside of school.
