Hello, wondering if any one has had this issue. My son’s 3rd grade teacher seems to do a lot of “if one person talks in line, the whole class has to go sit down and start over.” My son is ALWAYS the kid who talks in line and blows it for the class. He already has such a difficult time socially. He is a sweet soul but often overreacts, sometimes physically. The other day when my son made things worse for the class, a kid said “Thanks a lot, Joe” and my son pushed him, and got in trouble for that (as he should...) I just think this whole approach is really, REALLY bad for my son. He is on medication, sees a therapist and has an IEP.
Another mom I know told me she has a concern about the exact same issue with this teacher, except her son is one of the “good kids” who comes home disheartened and unhappy, bc the class has lost recess minutes or etc. bc of “a small group of boys” who are misbehaving.
Thoughts? Is this typical / common/ accepted way to manage the kids? Thanks so much.
