Morning meeting builds community and makes children feel safe and important in their classroom.
So what happens when a child breaks a rule?
Logical Consequences are not punishments. Everyone makes mistakes. Children Will push the limits- this is normal. They are trying to figure the rules out- as well as to see if we’ll follow through. My goal is to help our children learn selfcontrol.
“I use time out when a child is just beginning to lose it. This is before the child has lost face in the group. It’s at this point that time out is more effective. Like those grooves on the side of the highway, it’s a gentle nudge to get us back on track before we barrel off the road.”
