Kindergarten: A book for teachers and parents

My Favorite TIps From the Discipline Chapter

  • Start by having the children suggest rules with your help. Your list should contain: follow directions, keep hands and feet to yourself, finish your work, and be kind. Post the rules even if students can’t read them yet. Add a marble to the class marble jar every time the class receives a compliment. Suggest that parents use a marble jar at home. Count and estimate how many marbles it takes to fill the jar and do something special when it’s full. Don’t expect students to sit for long. Keep them active and give them something to do if they finish fast. When you correct a child, let them know it’s the behavior that is disliked, but the child is still loved. They will know that you care. Start with eye contact, proximity, and gentle contact. You are a role model. Don’t yell. Be as private as possible so as not to embarrass. Be quick to ask forgiveness when you make a mistake.
