Classroom Management - Playful and Effective Ways to Engage & Connect with your Class 9.3.2023 cancelled

Effective classroom management is one of the most important and empowering aspects of our teaching lives. When we can connect in with children in a meaningful and trusting way, that doesn’t rely on rewards, bribes and punishments, this builds safety in our relationship with the children. This webinar will give actionable tools and strategies that you can use straight away to help with managing your class and encouraging more intrinsic motivation to help the children flourish. I t will look at how we can encourage children to be capable, creative learners and encourage self-awareness and self-esteem. There will be discussion on self-esteem building strategies, positive actions for a healthy body, self-management and intrinsic motivation, in order to promote positive peer relationships and emotional support for your class. Children thrive on routine and setting effective non-judgemental boundaries and limits in your classroom can help children to feel safe, which will add to their ability to learn.

Learning Outcomes

- Reflect and become aware of their own regulation and how we can cultivate a positive classroom environment as teachers and SNAs

- Gain knowledge on motivation and how we can encourage class participation, without being over-dependent on reward systems.

- Learn new ways to effectively communicate with the children, in a collaborative way, starting with regulation, which leads to relationship and a sense of felt sense of safety for the children.
