We encourage the children to listen carefully to the directions, work silently, stay in their own seats, and seek help from the teacher.
* Encourage some independent work at home as well.
* Make sure your child has a quiet work area and understands the instructions before beginning the work.
* In the class, we work on walking safely, making sure there is personal space in line and in the coat room, keeping our hands to ourselves, and working silently.
These are difficult behaviors to master but with practice we will improve.
Some children find it difficult to work silently. Check with your child to see how they are doing and give them positive feedback when you notice them working quietly at home.
