Joey the Dragon Joey is a little boy whose two teachers often find him challenging. They have a class of 12 children who are 3 “ 4 years old. Most of the time Joey does not want to participate in any activities the teachers have for the class each day. He wants to play with the trucks in the block center because thats his very favorite thing to do. If he is told to come over to the rug area for group time or if he is told to come over to the table for an art activity he yells NO!!!! and starts to breathe very heavily. He says he is a big dragon and will breathe fire everywhere if the adults try to make him move from the area. Joeys teachers dont really enjoy him. They will often argue with him for a few minutes and then just give up and ignore him allowing him to continue playing with the trucks in order to avoid a big disruption. They dont feel that Joeys parents would care if they were to call them in and talk to them about Joeys behavior and attitude so they have not reached out to them.
