  Case: Touchy Students
I have a 4th grade male student who seems to be touchy with me. He's always touching my arms, poking me, and touching my hair. I always remind him to keep his hands to himself, but he always comes back doing the same thing. How should I handle this?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
If you hold class meetings you could review classroom behavioral expectations with all of your students. Perhaps using what if scenarios and having students provide appropriate behaviors might help the student understand the expectations for the class also apply to him.

Comments: I think that reviewing appropriate classroom behavior with all of your students would be a great idea. And if the student in question continues to use their hands on you, take the next step and have a meeting with the guidance counselor and include the parents if necessary.
