This time of year, to put it politely, is SURVIVAL MODE! I am trying some spring lessons that lighten the heart, playing calm music, and nipping some of the chaos in the bud. I am having some real heart-to-heart discussions with some of my more energetic and challenging classes. Reminding them that my purpose for teaching is not about me, but about them, and the true meaning of RESPECT for their learning and creative experience. I am certainly increasing and amping up the use of rewards! See link but below.
