As teachers we need to learn how to let go of our need to ‘control’ the class.

If some children are talking, it’s because they need to verbally communicate in order to understand.

If children are walking around the room then these are children who need to move in order to learn.

Those who are staring out of the window while you are talking are not auditory learners and the child who is always fidgeting in class needs a more tactile approach to his learning.

When we let go as teachers and loosen the reigns on our need to have control, we learn valuable insights into how our children learn and what their needs are.

Like trying to tie up water post someone a gift of sunlight or capture wind in a box, the child needs to be set free, to be observed and to be understood for a teacher to truly allow him/her to reach their full potential.

“Observation of a child in free play is the greatest assessment of both the child and the teacher we have.”

Make time for it, set your children free, say yes and allow the children to tell you how they like to be taught.

  1. I couldn’t have said it any better than this. Classrooms have always ristricted children’s movements and put them under duress. Teachers have difficulty accepting chaos as part of the learning process hence tight control.

  2. ITS LIKE HOTEL BUSINESS. LET THEM RUN LEFT , RIGHT OR STRAIGHT. AS TEACHER , AS AS MANAGER – CONTROL THEIR MOVES – SO THEY DONT GET HURT – ADJUST MOVEMENTS – CREATE A CONCERT!
