Interactive video lesson plan for: Classroom management: Narrating

Activity overview:

Classroom management starts with good teaching strategies. In this video I share my top classroom management tip. I teach you about narrating. Narrating is extremely effective in kindergarten but can also be used in other grades. Narrating is a teaching strategy that takes time to get used to. Keep practicing and you will become a natural at it.

Remember that when you are narrating you are only pointing out the positive behaviors. Classroom management is all about building positive momentum. When you narrate other students will begin to follow the lead of the students doing the right thing.
