A Pre and Primary Classroom Must Have a Positive Climate

A pre and primary teacher must create a positive classroom climate or environment that helps in motivating and engaging the students externally.  In this climate, students feel comfortable and safe and they learn to understand new things at smooth pace.

There are few factors which contribute to a positive learning climate for the students:

Core Ideals –The students must know that the classroom has an inclusive, respectful and community-oriented environment. It can be implemented by various tactics like involving the students in taking attendance, let them freely roam around inside and outside the classroom. A feeling of belonging must emerge. Each teacher have his or her own values and ideas but while taking a class must maintain certain standard norms in handling students as they are the immediate caregivers outside home ambience.

Primary Teaching Classroom

Structured Environment-Your classroom should be dynamic and engaging place to be for the students. How would you feel once you walk inside a pre and primary classroom without anything designed on the wall or handing from the top. So the environment should be fun with decor should be related to students mindset and also to the topics that are being taught.
In the wall reserve a particular portion for student’s postings could be their project work, or photos in groups. This will give them a sense of belonging. Similarly the desk should be in innovative shapes and sizes. Those should be placed in circle, groups or pairs instead of arranging them in regular row pattern.
Develop a code of conduct –Laying down the ground rules from the beginning in your relationship with a class is a parameter for success as a teacher. The students must also be involved in the process to remain aware of the rules and their consequences. But make sure while re-enforcing those does not create a negative impact on the students. But it should be easy going and students should be happy to follow those.
Relativity –The concept of relativity has prime importance here. The teachers as we know are responsible for imparting knowledge to the students must also learn from them as well. This is particularly true while handling a pre and primary classroom with diversified students from different age groups. Learning about your students will help you to organize your materials and classroom activities in relative to their interest. To keep the students engaged in a topic that is taught this thing must always be kept in mind while preparing your lesson plan.
Positive Actions Curriculum- It’s the most effective way to teach and instill in students positive behavior. Positive actions involves nutrition or hygiene awareness, problem –solving, decision making, thinking skill, kindness and respectful, time management and managing emotions by themselves etc helps the students in overall growth of the students. As students come from diverse family with different cultural, social economic backgrounds, developing a shared behavior is very important to bring about their social behavior.
Respond with positive vibe – Positivity is a key component of positive ambience or climate for young learners. Interacting with them in a positive manner, exhibiting a positive behavior and maintaining a positive attitude creates a great atmosphere to learn. It should always be kept in mind that regardless of any situations or circumstances, there is a particular way to interact with a student. No teacher should ever lose temper or get hyper at school and in the classroom. Because relationships are build on those aspects only.
A pre and primary classroom thus dwells on positive climate. A course on Early Childhood Care and Education Teachers Training can help aspiring teachers to focus on this aspect and show ways to implement those.
