bambooh Active Teaching Protocol
- Based on your planning maximise your bambooh Children’s teaching. Ensure your material and demonstration is rich with a diverse amount of stimulation including sounds, colours, smells and more.
- Challenge your bambooh Children encouraging them to take the next step, efforts that push them past their comfort zone.
- It’s important to let them try themselves, never do it for them. Use growth mindset language : “You didn’t get it, yet…why don’t you try again. I’m right here to help if you need it, I believe in you.”
- Be on the look out for teachable moments, it’s a powerful tool.
- Remember to use a wide range of facial expressions to help your bambooh Children develop micro expression.
Observe your bambooh Children as they build out and experiment on the content you have taught them. This is crucial to gauge the effectiveness of your teaching but also to identify children within the group who may be struggling to grasp any of the basic concepts or who may need the information to be presented in a different way.
Motivate your bambooh Children – constantly – to recall and integrate your teachings into their play and exploration. It is vital that we continue to repeat the teaching material in various forms and activities to strengthen what’s been taught.
Identify children in your bambooh Group who needs more encouragement and use examples from their peers to help them grasp what’s been taught.
Praise your bambooh Children’s efforts when they integrate your teaching into their responses, play and exploration.
Ensure that praise is, at all times, sincere. A powerful way to praise for a child in a group is to praise by proxy for example : “William, did you see how creative Rose was with how she made her circle?” Make sure the child you mention can hear your comment.
*Be mindful to distribute praise evenly to avoid the perception of preferential treatment.
