student being disruptive
In a kinder garden class I subbed for, there was a student that was always acting out: whining, yelling out, sitting on top of the desk and more. It was very disruptive to the class as the students were pointing it out to me on top of him actively doing these things where I could see and hear him. Do you think the best solution is to ignore the behavior even though it is disruptive? or should I fully address him and how?

Okay first off you definitely need to address that student in front of the class to show that you mean business, especially since the class is calling it out in front of you. You need to address the student privately as well and if the behavior is too much to handle involve the admin and make the call for someone to come help you out. I think you should not ignore this behavior as that could create a snowball effect and have the student act out more since no one is potentially noticing him or her. So address the student out loud and then talk to them in private and maybe a note home to the parents in their planner as well.

The behavior needs to be addressed, alone. Allowing the student to continue as they are is disrupting the students and instruction. They are receiving attention from their behavior and as long as that remains they will continue to behave as such. Their behavior needs to be addressed individually and away from the eyes and ears of the others students. If the usual methods of handling the misbehaviors aren't working then a parent conference is most definitely needed. Consider receiving input from the school's guidance counselor or any other staff that the student feels safe with and can open up to. The behavior has a cause and reason, it's important to find it and address it otherwise the behavior will not be resolved.

Definitely address the behavior. Make sure the student is aware of the consequences if the behavior doesn't stop. I would move the student's seat to sit closer to the teacher's desk. The student will less likely to act this way if they know that you are watching them at all times. If the behavior does not subside, write a note in the student's agenda home to the parents, write a note to the teacher, and make sure the student knows that you wrote the note and that there will be consequences for his behavior.

This needs to be addressed immediately. You have tried to ignore it, but now that other students are pointing it out to you this causes larger issues. The student needs to be talked to alone. Explain to him that this needs to stop. I would also recommend writing a letter home and offering to have a parent-teacher conference.

I think you need address the student. If you are doing it publicly the student could be doing it for attention. So maybe ignore it during class and then after class address him privately.
