Classroom Management Helps
Anyone working with children knows that one of the most common problems is connected with classroom management. It's not always easy to keep the attention of the children focused on the lesson. There's always one or two trying to distract the attention of the others. Yes, ideally each child should be motivated from within to listen attentively, but this is not a given. One thing you can do to help your students become more self-controlled is to use behavioral incentives like those offered below. Each comes with instructions, but feel free to adapt these ideas to fit your situation. We're also including a set of notes and a lecture on how to set and enforce your own class rules. Making rules is not as fun as using the incentives below, but they do place an important role on creating an environment in your class that is safe and comfortable for all to learn. Don't let the behavior of a few spoil the learning experience for the others.
