Decide on your discipline rules
Don't expect primary
school pupils to work in silence. It is normal for children
to laugh and talk to
each other while they are doing an activity. Instead of
preventing them from
talking try to provide them with the language they need
for their communication.
Children need to move
around. The school day is long and we cannot
reasonably expect them
to sit at desks all day. Try to include at least one
moving activity in each lesson.Let
them stand up or clap and act to songs and
Be prepared to change
the order of your activities in your lesson plan to take
into account the mood of your
pupils. If they seem unruly at the beginning of
the lesson , start off with
a physical activity.If they get restless halfway through
the lesson , stop what you
are doing and get them moving.
Always emphasise and reinforce
the good things that pupils do. children love
public encouragement , so make sure
that the other pupils hear you praising and
appreciating someone's work or conduct.
Remember that children need this
praise , even the ones who do not
always demand your approval.
