Well,  this is the end of November - a time when most kids have gotten thoroughly used to the routine of school.  Has this come up recently,  or has he had these episodes since early September?

I also wonder is school a new experience for him?  Has he been in daycare or pre school?

I don't think I would punish for this.  It sounds like something else is going on.  If he has good use of language and can express himself well, I would ask him quite casually (when you are calm) what is going on.  I think that if it's just the transition from one activity to another, I would be consulting his Dr. as well.
