“Hands and feet to self!” “Hands and feet to self!”
Parents have you been chanting the mantra to your little ones? I don’t thinks so. There are still too many instances of physical aggression in our classroom. I am still having to stop in the middle of lessons to address these issues and of course it takes away from valuable time spent teaching.
After lunch alone, I spend at least twenty minutes investigating issues that would have occurred on the playground and all of them have the same common thread running through them; physical aggression.
Parents we have to nip these behaviours in the bud. We must keep chanting “Hands and feet to self!” I am depending on you to help me.
Today we discussed all of the marvellous things our hands can do. Let’s reinforce these at home and I am sure that our classroom will become a safer, more peaceful environment for our young ones.
Depending on each and every one of you,
