classroom rules: lets control the class effectively ;)

I have my own way to control my class when teaching mathematics. In my year 1 class...i choose to use a reminder to control their behavious. I just need to reminds them of what type of pupils they want to be. I just need to ask them "what do good pupils do?" And everytime they listen to my questions they will reply :Good pupils listen to their teacher" and then I reply to them by saying "Good..teacher said you must do ..." It really works to my year 1 pupils. I can observed that every time they listen to my questions, they will keep quiet and then listen to whatever I want them to do. It takes time to make them discipline but when they already use to it, I have no problem at all to give them instructions or to make them give attention to me ;)

Different for year 5 pupils, I use another way to get their attention. I use freeze frame to control their behaviour. Yeah..it sounds weird but its work and fun. I make an agreement with them that every time I said "FREEZE", everyone in the class will stop and not moving. They will listen carefully to my instructions. They will just move again after they listen I clap my hands 2 times. It so interesting to do with the pupils. I had done this way since my last practicum. I thought that I cannot use this type of classroom rules in this school but I was wrong. It works! just as same as what happened in my last practicum session. Not only I am so happy to give the instructions but the pupils are also happy to be "freeze' because they think it is just like a game.

I hope that I always be ready to face any challenges that I do not know will come in the future. But until right now, I am so thankful of where I am ;)

p/s: if u be too strict with your pupils, you actually build a boundary to them...so be careful ;)
