Unlikely to arrive before Christmas
Establishing appropriate behaviour in the classroom is a concern for all teachers, and children's earliest experiences in school are crucial. Children who arrive for their first day motivated to learn, able to listen and knowing how to co-operate make the best use of the learning environment. Some children find this difficult often because they have not had opportunities to foster these skills. In this text, the authors: show how teachers can encourage children to learn positive attitudes and engage in appropriate classroom behaviour from the outset; consider what can be done to minimize disruptive behaviour; encourage a range of useful perspectives on behaviour and young children in school; and supply practical, easy-to-implement strategies. The book should be a useful resource for teachers, school managers, teaching assistants, SENCOs, educational psychologists and student teachers. It is an updated and revised edition of the authors' previous publication "Infant Classroom Behaviour".
