Running in the classroom, cafeteria or hallways can cause distraction or even injury to other children. Often times, children display this behavior when playing roughly, to garner attention or when displaying disregard for authority. If running is a problem in your classroom, consider implementing behavior control strategies. Such strategies can range from establishing standards for classroom behavior to restricting privileges for students who run to meeting with the student’s parents. To ensure these strategies work, remain firm in your interactions with your students.
