Low literacy
Student is not doing her work. She is keeps interrupting class and being extremely disruptive. She argues with other students. She is aggressive verbally and physically. She talks back and mocks the students. The issue I feel is that she is extremely low reader. She is a level g reader in the fourth grade. She is not receiving any services. I am working on gaining data for services but what is a suggestion you have for this student.

Giving her more positive attention, I believe will be helpful. When she is nice or does a good behavior, praise her for it. Try to make her reading experience as positive and helpful as possible. Have a conversation with her allowing her to be okay with her reading level and come up with goals and steps on how to higher it together.

If I was a teacher I would spend some one on one time with the student to see where the challenges are coming from. This also lets the student know that I care and concerned about them achieving goals.

I agree with making sure to show more attention to student. Therefore she isnt seeking it through the students.

I would definitely set the expectations for learning and for interacting with each other to help create a safe learning environment for all my students. I would track her outburst and see if there is a specific pattern. Also working with this student in small group would help them guide them so they don’t feel like they have no support in the area that they struggle in might help.

For this situation, I would speak with the student about her behavior but also make it a point to encourage her and her ability to do what she needs to do. I think a lot of the time, students do not believe in themselves and encouragement and support from their teacher can go a very long way.

I think being a low reader has something to do with the aggression, but it sounds like the student has an undiagnosed LD and would highly recommend testing. Students often act out when they feel they can't control what is going on.

What you can try first is to correct the behavior and use the five to one ratio. This is for every one correction or negative interaction you have with them, you give the student five positives. Now this can sometimes be challenging, but the student is acting out it sounds like because they are struggling and they want to put that on you and other students. Working with the student one on one while they are reading may help them while you try to collect data and get them services. The most important thing in this situation is to remain patient and keep working with the student, don't shut them out. I think they may not have support at home that they need, so you could try giving them resources to help them work on their reading at home which can be in the form of picture books at a lower level while they progress or could be audio books to read along with them.

I would suggest putting this student into their own group selection. Like, create a separate group to work with her one on one with her reading and her reading skills. If this student is early on get magnetic letters and a board to work building the words she does not know in real-time. Also, you could do a lot of sensory activities to help increase her reading score and level and ability.

More one-on-one or small group. Try to incorporate reading activities that can allow her to receive peer assistance and encourage her to enjoy the reading experience into lessons.

The student is probably acting out because she is insecure about her reading level. She is not as great as a reader as the rest of the class which makes her act out to draw the attention away from it. She may need to be put into a remedial reading class or setting where she gets one on one help to better her reading level. In the meantime, you could have the student sit closer to your desk to see if she refrains from acting out as much. Also, give her incentives when she does well.

A suggestion for working with this student might be to have a talk with her alone, and outside of class time. Let her know how her behavior is disrupting other students, and that this is not ok. Also acknowledge to her the fact that you notice she has the potential to be doing better in the class than she is, and you want to help her. You can set aside one on one time after school or get her connected with a tutor. If the problem continues, I would get the parents involved as well.

Talk to the student before class. Usually communicating with them will calm the situation. Also, try redirecting whenever possible when she starts to be disruptive.

If I was a teacher respect would be a discussion with the entire class. The I would spend one on one time explaining this to the student and consequences if he or she keeps it up.
