Hi friends! I am Jennifer from everything just so. This is my first official post with the Primary Pack and I'm so excited to share a few tips and resources with you today!
For the bulk of my teaching career, I’ve always had at least one of “those” kids in my class. You know the ones - defiant, distracting, and determined to show you who’s really in charge. After several failed attempts at managing their behavior, I was in desperate need of new ways to reach those kids who needed me most.
Starting from scratch, I began to understand that most behavior issues were the result of factors that had nothing to do with me, other students, or school as a whole. Not only did this realization give me greater insight into the students themselves, but also it freed me from taking blow-ups personally. I started incorporating several steps at the beginning of each year that led to fewer behavior problems, positive students, and a happier me.
Looking for ways to reach a difficult kid? Today I'm providing you with six steps to reaching even your most unruly student over on my blog. Plus, I'm linking to two free resources that give your students support along the way. To learn more, simply click here.
