Refusal to Transition
I have a student who refuses to leave the classroom and walk in line. The student will cross her arms and refuse to leave the classroom. I cannot leave the student, but I also have a schedule to keep and it's affecting my other students. What should I do?

A solution would be to express my concern with the student and remind them about the classroom procedures. Inform the student that a conference with parents will have to be set if the behavior does not change. Another solution would be to make transitioning fun or create a successful transition chart with a reward system when transition without an issue.

I would begin by seeing if there is a reason behind the student not wanting to leave the classroom. See if something is causing it and find a way to remove that stressor. Like what was already suggested, I would have a conversation with student about classroom expectations, and repercussions for not following the rules. Another way is to come up with a creative way to make lines more fun, such as buddy walking. Have students pair up with a buddy, and walk together towards the next activity.

I think having a more fun and creative way to transition might help as well. Students might feel more 'safe' in the classroom, so having a more creative way to transition might show the student that everywhere else at school is safe and fun.

Ask for support because the student's behavior is affecting the routine of the entire classroom. Ask the administration that provides another person to help you with the student during transition periods. you can create a mini behavioral plan with something that interest him every time the student collaborates until he reaches the goal of smooth transition.

I would seek out support and maybe mention the behavior to the parents of the student.
