difficult child's morning was not out of the ordinary, his schedule was the same, there were no changes. His time in my room was fine, in fact he worked very hard and earned a super student ticket. He did complain of being tired several times. Before he left my room he was allowed 2 minutes of free time with an activity of his choice. He played basketball for those 2 minutes. He then went with the good para to mainstream room. When he arrived there he did his routine as usual, and then began work on a letter to his brother. He was working at his designated desk, it was just difficult child and good para in the close vicinity. Good para was aiding him through the process of writing the letter, with breaks as needed, although difficult child was insistent that he continue working until the letter was completed. He complained 3 to 4 times that he was tired. He began to cry and make loud sobbing sounds. Para aided him in taking deep breaths to get calm, which he attempted and appeared to be calmer. He went back to work, writing one word. He then cried more, getting louder and banging his fists on the desk. He was given a reminder that he needed to take deep breaths to get back in control, which he did not attempt, he continued crying loudly and banging fists on desk. Para told difficult child that he needed to leave the classroom until he could get back in control. He voluntarily walked to his safe room, when he got close to the room he hit para. Once inside the safe room he made the comments, 'I hate mediocre para, good para, and sped teacher.' He then made the comment 'I'm going to kill all of you, I hate all of you.' 'I am going to bring a shotgun to school tomorrow to kill principal, or maybe a bazooka.' So this is his "refusal to work".
