Very young children can usually focus on one thing at a time and we as teachers need to direct that focus in meaningful and fun ways. The greatest gifts that teachers have to offer are love, direction, constancy, high expectations, and positive reinforcement for just being. Allowing children to make choices, to be responsible for their actions, and to feel some control for what happens during their school days will give them self-confidence and the building blocks for a positive self-image. Classroom concepts can be taught through the movement of the Terrific Me program. Laterality, directionality, counting, big and little, etc.
