If you’ve ever taught a group of kids, or even if you haven’t, you know what it’s like to maintain some semblance of order in a group bigger than, oh…say…two!
It doesn’t take long for kids to get over their awkward self-consciousness and form little cliques, etc. The longer they spend time together, the more challenging it is to get their attention, quiet them down, or give them directions on what they’ll be doing next.
Want a cool way to make this a bit easier? Great. And by the way, I said ‘a bit’ easier…I didn’t say it allows total control but it is so much better than having them all talk while you’re talking (which I don’t remember doing when I was in school, but we’ll save that discussion for my personal blog at a later date).
