Reducing conflict and stress in your pre-K classroom
Be a detective! You can recognize triggers that cause disruptive behavior. Put steps in place to eliminate these triggers. Maybe these two boys shouldn't sit together!
Group activities help kids practice skills! Play games that encourage flexibility, creative thinking and teamwork. Avoid competition based games.
Change the time and reset- Be prepared to adjust the daily schedule you have set. Shorten activities if children seem unable to focus or begin "acting out!" Re-focus attention by providing a group movement or breathing break.
