When possible, try to disengage in the moment. Find a private time to conference about their behavior. Remember that behavior is a symptom of what they are feeling or how they are processing something. If a student is able to open up or vocalize the root of their unruliness- you can respond accordingly. However, if not- I usually use the saying "I see that you are having a hard time engaging today. I'm sorry. Whenever you are ready to engage in our task- we are ready and eager to hear from you." THis is said quietly and privately. THen- I leave them alone for some time to wind down and re-engage. Other students need more activity. I encourage teachers to use wiggle-seats, fidget toys and as many kinthestic teaching ideas as possible.
What grade level? While I definitely agree with Crystal's comments, we may have some additional tips depending on the grade band...
