100 smiles – day 12

Posted on

So today I took charge a little more with some of the lessons. The kids are always really asleep in the morning so I got them up out of their seats doing stretches and playing silly games. It certainly woke them up! In fact it was such a success that we did it for most of the classes during the day, just to get them to use a little energy so they were ready to sit and concentrate for a while! Then Loriel took them through about 40 minutes of reviewing the previous years work before I got to play more games, this time testing their understanding of what we’d done in class. It’s really easy to lose the attention of the class when they’re this young, activities and work needs to be kept short and fun or else they’ll be off chatting and you’ll never get them back. Being silly and playing games is the kind of teacher I want to be, it was fun to try a little of that today!

Then this evening there was skype time, always guaranteed to put a smile on my face!

  1. Well done for working out how to get their attention already! Andy’s school does something called WakeyShakey which is basically theY6 children leading the rest of the school in a dance before registration. Maybe a bit big scale fr you but defo on the same wavelength and defo proven for increasing activity too!
