Challenging Behaviors: Clean-Up Time Scenario 


This activity will demonstrate your ability to identify and implement strategies to prevent and/or address children’s challenging behaviors.  


It is free time and children are in different centers throughout the classroom.  There are 18 children present and 2 teachers.  Robert who is 4 years 2 months is in the block area and building with his friend Tyron.  Teacher announces that it is time for cleanup.  Robert and Tyron keep playing in block area.  Teacher speaks directly to them and says,” Boys time to clean up”.  Some children in classroom are putting materials away while others continue to play.  3 minutes go by and teacher comes by the block area again and says, “Robert and Tyron, pick up the blocks.  I already told you it is clean up time.”  She walks away to the dramatic play area to let children know it is clean up.  10 minutes have gone by and the areas are still not cleaned up.  Teacher walks over to the lights and switches off the lights.  “Is this how we clean up?  I have given you 2 warnings that it is clean up time.  Put away the toys, now”.    Robert and Tyron leave block area and go sit down for group time without putting away the blocks.  At the end of the day when Robert’s Mom came to pick him up the teacher remarked, “Robert didn’t follow instructions today.  He needs to work on putting away the toys he plays with because today he didn’t put away the blocks. You really need to work with him”
