Classroom Rules and Behavior Expectations
Creating rules seems easy enough, but are your rules doing enough for you? Rules should help make your job easier by telling the children the desired behaviors. Well-designed classroom rules are a critical component to any teaching toolkit and allow early educators to successfully manage their classrooms. This learning event is one of our proactive teaching strategies and developing a good set of rules will help early educators establish boundaries for the children. Participants in this learning event will be able to explain the difference between rules and expectations, select rules that are positive, clear and simple, and summarize strategies for teaching the rules to children.
Turn Time Out Into Time In
‘Go to Time Out!’ then the longest 3 minutes of screaming, kicking, and crying of the day erupt. Time Out can be a huge power struggle, especially for a strong-willed child and time out is hard on sensitive children. Most of the time, they don’t even work to change the behavior and you are stuck in an endless loop of misbehavior, time out and frustration. What do you do? Let’s try turning Time Out into Time In! In this learning event, we will explore what exactly is a time in and what are the benefits to children as opposed to use of time out and we will identify some alternative strategies when there are challenges to implementing time in in the early care and education setting. Sign up today to help manage your classroom environment!
Participants who complete the course length and interactive resources, videos, and questions, and pass a post knowledge assessment with a score of 90% or higher (multiple attempts allowed) will earn the CEU certificate.
