The incident happened Wednesday afternoon as the 23-year-old teacher tried to stop the student from stomping Play-Doh into the ground, according to the report.
The child lunged at her and punched her in the jaw, punched her multiple times in the left arm and stomped on her left foot and kicked her in the shin, and picked up scissors, markers and pencils and threw them at other students, according to the report.
The teacher reported the student had punched her in the stomach earlier in the week and threw blocks at her earlier in the school year.
The police department's juvenile detectives are investigating the incident, Gilberto Franco, Greenville Police spokesman, said.
The school district is also providing additional counselors to help the other children in the classroom who witnessed the incident. The school's principal also called parents Thursday morning to keep them informed about the situation, Brotherton said.
