As an illustration, if your toddler said thank you after receiving something they had asked for, you should then praise the action by saying “it was very nice of you to say thank you”, rather than just saying “good job”. In turn, this helps the toddler understand the behavior that is being praised. In sum, then praising children is fundamental to their intelligence and development; however, such praise has to be carefully phrased. Intellectual and ability praise is not only harmful to the child's growth, but it can also be detrimental to the relationship between parents and their children. Furthermore, without the proper wording of the praise children may see it as empty and feel as though they lack the ability of the task at hand.

However, it is just as important to recognise and reward positive behaviour by those children who always behave well. By emphasising positive behaviour in the classroom and explaining why, e.g. “look at child X, who is listening well, as they always do”, we are encouraging this behaviour, as we recognise and praise the child for behaving well. This can then improve the behaviour of other children as it is promoting a positive role
In the essay “Nanny boo-boos” by John Leo, the author discusses how in the attempts made to make everyday life safer, it is actually encouraging creeping nannyism which is described by the author as proposing a program that appears limited and reasonable, but then escalates until a demented level of government intrusion is reached. Leo begins his essay by writing about the different types of bullying in the school, mentioning that there are other types aside from just violence and intimidation. The author goes on to explain how the extended criteria for bullying makes most students bullies, to remedy this Leo writes how seating in lunchrooms may have to be rearranged and an anti clique rule be put in place as per a school workbook.
I model appropriate behaviors, establish routines and simple rules in the classroom, speak positively with the children, understand that children may not be ready to share, and they need to explore and experiment with control and saying ‘no’. I realize that all children may show challenging behaviors – they are learning to control their bodies, and to control their emotions. I feel the most important aspect of positive guidance for challenging behavior is to build strong relationships with the children. These relationships allow me to know exactly what each child needs in terms of developing their social, emotional, and problem-solving skills, their self-regulation, and their

This was an example of how they do not change their classes until their training begins. There was another rule for when someone disrupted their class, that they would have to deliver an apology phrase to their class, and then the class had to say that they accepted their apology. For example, Asher
I had the pleasure of visiting with Mrs. Cooke’s fifth grade class during my clinical experiences. Mrs. Cooke has a great rapport with her students and has very little difficult actively engaging students in learning. One of the “takeaways” from my visit references the students’ and teachers’ commitment to the principles of “The Leader in Me”. From a school-wide perspective, East Elementary School does not practice the traditional positive behavior interventions. Instead, the administration has adopted the ideals and principles behind “The Leader in Me”.
Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” – (Department for Education, 2012). When a behaviour policy works alongside an effective learning environment, the 7th standard of the QTS Teaching Standards will have been achieved. When achieving this the teacher is closer to accomplishing the rest of the Teaching Standards. In order for children to have an education which enables them to fulfil their potential as well as learning in a positive environment a well written behaviour policy must be set in place. Ensuring supporting a child’s behaviour within the classroom and around school will enable teachers to teach without any
Since the goal for this class, was to finished presenting their work orally and visually, students were prompted to provide positive on constructive feedback, to follow the class agreements (rules) they created at the beginning of the year, and they only practiced for about seven minutes (pair and share). After the students did collaborative learning, they went back to their seat. Then, a few students presented their poems as the rest of the class listened and rated the presenters. Unfortunately, some of Mrs. Carbone’s students
Although the lesson plan’s primary objective is to improve the overall quality of teaching to benefit students, this also improves teacher motivation and development. This is achieved through using the lesson plan as a permanent record of lessons taught. In the case where the lesson has been
The teacher has a positive attitude towards her students and teaching. She smiled, she took time to say hello, and asked how their weekends were. During their conversations, she would maintain eye contact with the students. During instructional time, she was prepared for the upcoming lesson and follow-up. She showed a passion for teaching through the energy, drive, and cohesiveness of the classroom.
