All Topics Below Are Included


1. Take Control and Calm the Chaos
Children do not typically come into your classroom with good manners, knowing how to share, knowing the routine, being respectful, and kind of others. This can be overwhelming!

2. End Power Struggles - Win Over Strong-Willed Children
Effective strategies that you can immediately implement with children who are strong-willed * How to prevent power struggles * How to handle power struggles when they occur * Harness the power of “novelty”  * The 3 A’s for effectiveness * Re-channel the strengths of children who are strong-willed into positive leadership and caring 

3. “Stop the Drama”  What to Say and When to Say It So Children Listen
Positive-proven strategies to help children listen the first time * Learn words to avoid and words to use instead * How to turn “no” into “yes” * The skills you will learn in this powerful session are based on Maryln Appelbaum’s best-selling book "How to Talk to Kids So They Listen" - and they really work.

4. Take Control of Circle Time to Make It Calm but Fun Too!
Circle time can either be chaotic or it can be a time to teach young children new concepts and learn to care for each other * Learn how to handle the transitions to circle time *   Get answers to questions like how do I get the children to sit still, what’s the best length of time for circle time, how do I hold children’s attention, how do I get rid of the wiggles * Create the best circle time ever!

5. Calm the Crazies – Expert Strategies for the Child Who Takes Up Your Attention Every Day
Do you have that one child that takes up your attention from the moment of arrival to the end of the day?  This child takes up so much attention all day that you sometimes feel guilty that you are not spending more time with others in your class. Always seems like you’re “putting out fires?” Receive expert strategies on how to get through to this child so the child is more able to learn and play independently and cooperatively.
