In teaching and re-teaching behavior, we should teach our children the right time to Stop. Before every destructive behavior, there is always a time to stop and think!
It’s important to teach or children to listen to their inner voice
Simon the Self Control Seal says Stop, Think, and Breathe and Make the Right Choice
The first step is knowing when to stop!
Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I only taught as a classroom teacher for year. When I did, I tried to make sure that every activity was exciting so that if students had to sit out they would be upset. Can you imagine tell students they won’t be able to participate in math, and they get angry? Not that we want to make our students angry. But we want them so excited to be a part of whatever we’re doing in class that day.
In order to do that, we have to think out of the box. Math Baseball, Vocabulary Basketball, Dictionary Races, duck, duck spell, these are just some the things I did with my students. We would move the desk and put mats on the floor and lay down to read. We marked any words we didn’t know, then used the thesaurus to break it down. Then make vocabulary flash cards for Vocabulary Basketball. There were days we worked right on through special area. We even missed recess, and no one said anything. That was an Awesome year!
In guiding our students to be self corrected students, teachers and parents must think outside the box. Students will do amazing things for you when they know that you’re willing to step outside of your comfort zone for them!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! Teaching our students self control is one of the most important lessons you could ever teaching. This involves teaching our children to think about what they think about!
Many articles compare the benefits of self control versus self esteem. However, I see it as being directly correlated. Students who know how to control themselves almost always have a high self esteem. Children who lack self control normally are the ones who are being constantly redirected, which doesn’t always make us feel good. While those who control themselves get complimented constantly, which feels good.
Let’s think intrinsically. How many times have you gone on a diet or said you were going to stop smoking? Then 3 or 4 days in you have let your self down due to lack of self control. You normally feel horrible. Now how many time have you set your mind to accomplish a goal and actually accomplished it? After which you feel excited and confident. The same is with self control. Every time student get the victory over themselves, they become stronger.
Help our students feel good about themselves by instilling the habit of self control.

ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
