Whew! Thirty three years and counting!
I believe in order and organization and insist on it. HOWEVER, I know that children remember things that are fun to them. I like to use movement and music as much as possible. I know also that children must trust and like their teacher or else they do not put forth their best effort. If they get too noisy, I start singing a tune quietly and they respond. (Even if I do sound like a frog!)
