Get Students Interested in Learning
Use games in order to make learning more fun. You can either make up your own games or you can buy them. Just be sure they are a lot of fun and pertinent to what you are trying to teach in your classroom. Kids enjoy playing all types of games so you can be sure to keep their interest in the classroom if you play a learning game each day. Try not to make it a game where there are any winners and losers though, make it something where everyone wins so that no one will feel left out if they still just can't seem to get the material. Of course, there are some occasions when all of the educational learning tools in the world can't help a student catch on to a lesson. We have all been there, where we just don't understand something. If this is the case for you with a student, then be sure not to call attention to the fact that they are struggling. Simply talk to them to see if there is anything you can do to help them understand the material better. All it takes is to ask and then it will be clear how to help.
