    Default tips for new teachers

    As a new SpEd teacher, can you give me some tips on what reinforcers should I give to grade 1 students? They do not want candies and stars anymore. Thank you!

    I think you need to try giving them more free time and free play. Those will encourage them to participate in your activities. I hope this will help

    I like the previous post! They often really can tell you what the obstacle is and even a solution!
    Another thing I heard at an ADHD seminar, was learn to accept them for who they are. That has helped me as i work with kids who are dyslexic, autistic, who have ADHD, etc. Each one of them has their own virtues and strengths, and it's important to get to know what they like and what they are good at, so that side of them can be nurtured while they work on areas of improvement. This really helps self-esteem, (which as we know, can be a major issue leading to behavioral problems.)

    try and give them a new activity that is fun so that they will be occupied and not be hyperactive...

    As a new teacher and educating little ones make sure that you are showing patience and know each student on an individual personal basis. Remember that you will stand as a second parent of your student and set as a good example to them.
