Hi, friends! This week I am chatting a little more about independence, specifically during lessons. As I spoke about in a previous post, students should be set up to be independent. This begins with their learning environment. Other ways to set your student up for independence and success is by establishing code phrases for behavior management, introducing learning tools, and the rapport you build with your students from the beginning. If you missed that post or need a refresher, check it out here.
This week's post will focus on getting parents out of the lesson and back on their conference calls. 😉 It really is for their child's benefit. I have had a parent shocked to hear that their five-year-old is independent with their learning. I'm going to explain some step-by-step strategies on how I get all of my students independent, from a five-year-old to teenagers.
