Happy New Year! Welcome back to School. We thought you would like to see Sugarman Education’s 5 Top Teaching Tips on starting 2019 as you mean to go on in the classroom.
Get organised – If you’ve got a stationary cupboard that’s overflowing or marking that runs away with you, our best advice is to choose one organisation method and stick to it. Whether it be a desk planner pad, electronic notes or a diary – choose a method that suits you and it will be easier to stick to.
Photo wall – Create a photo wall in your classroom of your students enjoying various trips/activities or exciting plans to look forward to – it will inspire your students for the upcoming term.
Workspace – Creating an inspiring working environment is a must for teachers and students. This could be introducing colours, quotes or artwork to your classroom. The more fun and energising, the more engaged your students will be.
Positive quote – Choose one positive motivating quote every term to spur you on & keep it handy. It could be an inspiring quote, a music lyric or poetry – something that inspires and motivates you everytime you look at it.
Ask (& listen) – Speak to your students about the objectives for each term and how you plan to deliver them. Get their feedback to help plan your lessons. If students have contributed ideas, they are often even more engaged when those ideas are rolled out!
Don’t forget, just another 6 weeks until February half term, which we know will fly! We’ll catch up then with new Sugarman Education Teaching Tips for the Spring Term.
