Kissing at recess
Some of the kids have made up a new game at recess. The boys will chase the girls with kissing gestures and sometimes kiss them when tagged and vice-versa. I have witnessed this game and told students to stop. The matter was also addressed to the whole class after recess. One week, later students are playing the game again. What should I do?

Every time you see a student playing, they lose recess and have to sit with you. If the whole class has to be sat out, then take them inside and make them do classwork instead.

This might work but I would be contacting the parents of those students playing the game and let them know the situation and that they have already been told not to being doing this.

I think this is a good immediate solution. I agree contacting the parents would also be helpful. However, rather than doing work, I'd have a silent recess. This will allow the students time to reflect before moving to the next activity.

The loss of recess and free time is a good solution if the children do not learn their lesson, however I would also recommend explaining to students why this game is inappropriate (not appropriate behavior for school, that kissing is not something they should do right now) and possibly redirecting them into a new game first. Children do need reasons for a lesson to truly stick sometimes.

This should receive immediate punishment. Students that do this need to know that it is innapropriate. A good way to handle this would obviously be to take away recess everytime it occurs. If that fails, parental involvment would be reccomended.

I would keep telling them that this is not okay until hopefully it stops. Eventually if it is still happening I would have a talk one on one with each parent so they know what is going on at recess.

Kids can be like that when they are young, take away recess if it does not stop.

Since it has been told for the students to stop playing this game and still do so is a problem. The consequence should be sitting out for recess for the students who insist on playing this game. The students need to know that it is an inappropriate game.

I think there are a few steps to take. To immediately correct the behavior, have the kids sit out any time you see them playing this game. A silent recess means they can reflect on their actions and will be prompted not to do so again. I would also explain to the whole class, without singling anyone out, as to why this game is inappropriate to play. A lesson and a notice home to parents so they can address this at home, as well. If the problem persists, the students can loose recess privilege all together, and that usually does the trick. Perhaps more teachers/staff out at recess as well to help watch and correct the behavior? If available of course.
