Child Please!

Many times in the classroom students will do everything possible to push your buttons. That’s why it pays to have “Child Please” mindset. Meaning, you will not allow anything to take you out of your zone. Happiness is a choice! So instead of focusing on poor behavior, just keep teaching the students who are listening. (If you can stand it that long) You will see that if you don’t turn your total focus on that child, he/she will come right back to the group. My Aunt Jackie says, “Remember, if you give the children a stage, they will perform for you every time.” The more attention you give to that behavior, the more outrageous they will get! If you can close your eyes and breathe in deep and say: All is well in my classroom. I teach with ease! I see my students learning with ease! Teaching is my passion, my joy, my love, friend! Teaching is FUN!! Child Please!!!! Then give the biggest smile you can give and keep teaching. (That’s what I do. Those children don’t know what to think. . .  LOL!)
