These January themed greetings will help you create an optimal learning environment for all children! Greeting children each day as they arrive in the classroom help build relationships and literally wire the brain for success in school. When you take the time to greet each student warmly and include eye contact, touch, presence, and a playful situation you are helping to improve attention, impulse control, and cooperation. This is one of the best behavior management strategies you will find!!! It is not about controlling children's behavior, it is about making connections!
