Behavior Plan for an Energetic Student

This storyboard does not have a description.
Bring your body back to the group.
Where's your schedule? Let's look at it.
All of the students are happily working on an art project, except for one. This student tends to jump up and run around the room when he has a lot of energy or wants to escape a task.
Right now it's time for art. In art the group plan is to sit at the table and color the menorah. If you need a break from art you can use your words to ask for a break or show me your break card.
Instead of chasing after the student and giving him attention, the teacher tries to 'herd' the student back to his seat by blocking him with her body and pointing to the chair. The teacher keeps a neutral tone while prompting the student to sit back down.
Good job using your words to ask for a break! Let's color in one more candle and then take that break.
I need a break!
The student returns to his chair, and the teacher positions herself behind him so he can't immediately pop up again while she reminds him of the behavioral expectations.
You colored one candle, and now you can have a break! Would you like to take a walk or read a book?
The teacher reminds the student of the behavioral expectations. She also reminds him of how he can ask for a break, giving him a more appropriate way to escape the task at hand.
When the student asks for a break, the teacher gives him one small, easy task to complete first. This helps the student to associate the break with on-task behavior as opposed to his earlier escape behavior.
When the student finishes the small task, it's time to take a break! The teacher allows him to make a controlled choice.
