Importance Of Positive Reinforcement

Improved Essays
I firmly believe that every child learns differently. Some children learn by listening, others learn from peers, some may learn by using a manipulative and others may learn by reading. Whatever a child’s learning style is, I plan on incorporating that into my classroom everyday. I believe that a child needs more positive enforcement in his/her lives then they do negative. They do not need to be constantly put down for the things they have done wrong, rather they should be praised for the things that they have done right. Positive reinforcement is something that I plan to use a great deal in my classroom to encourage students to do well.
One of the main things I look to provide for students is that it is a fun and a supportive environment to learn in. This begins on the first day of the school year. I will greet the children with smiles and attempt to get to know them the best I can. I believe that developing a relationship early in the school year helps with behavior and also helps with students becoming comfortable with you. I want the children to enjoy coming to class everyday and not for it to feel like a prison. I want my student to be engaged in

I encourage positive behavior with positive reinforcement with a ratio of 4:1. Student need to feel accomplished and not put down all the time.
The way students behave in the classroom can affect the way I teach and how other students learn. If a student is having bad behaving all the time, it causes me to constantly correct this behavior and takes away from other students learning. Correcting and enforcing a desired behavior in the beginning of the year is the most effective ways to have a positive learning environment for the students and for me to be able to teach the material

    I believe for the most part that educators and our schools are trying to do the best that they can but there is always room for improvement. Schools are offering extracurricular activities to students to help promote students identifying their interests and abilities outside of the classroom walls. With more hands on learning students are given the opportunity to explore what they enjoy and where their interests are instead of just teaching what the text book says. Interactive classrooms have become prevalent in our classrooms and this has allowed our students to work with others and develop and set personal goals as well as classroom goals. Our schools today have come to realize that not all students learn in the same way.…

    I believe learning styles are important to the educational system because then as teachers we can do little things to adjust our plans to make sure every child understands the learning material and is having a positive learning experience. I think learning styles are important because no 2 people are the same so why would those two people learn the same way. I like that there is a broad general description on how to better teach different types of children. I see myself using this information in my early childhood education classrooms often. I will be noticing other children’s learning styles easier and be able to adjust what I am doing to get through to them as easily as I can.…

    A positive learning environment helps to manage students’ emotional states, which are critical in learning. For example, “distress can impair cognition” (Jensen, 1998, p. 1637) While Positive feelings that students associate with learning, teachers and school, “may strengthen attendance and, ultimately boost graduation rates” (p. 1673). To help manage the classroom, I plan to implement my knowledge over the link between learning and movement by implementing daily exercises and stretching to help improve blood flow to the brain because “exercise improves classroom behavior and academic success (Jensen, 1998, p.).” Jensen also taught me that movement is processed in the same part of the brain as learning, so when I get my students moving, I stimulate their active learning. I will also work to have a positive influence by giving positive feedback because “An increased positive affect leads to improved flexibility in behavior and judgment” (Jensen, 1998,…

    Essentially, we believe that learning morals early on in school is a way to guarantee the highest degree of success in using these morals throughout their lives. Children are very impressionable at a young age and it is important to instill good morals and values in them. They’re brains are already open and taking in new information that they are learning in class which makes them more susceptible to learning and remembering the morals taught to them. Being in school and being taught these morals will eventually get edged into the children’s brains and almost become second nature. Having friends at school that are also…

    The last two are patient and flexible. Teachers need these because working with children can be overwhelming, but if one is patient and flexible they can make it through even the toughest of days. I will practice theses by rolling with whatever my students through at me. All of the NC Standards are great, but these qualities need to be incorporated. With the information from the NC Professional Teaching Standards and the standard I have made, my classroom will be a safe and educational environment for students to learn.…

    _____________ Students can fill these sheets of paper out and share positive things that they’d like to say about each other. I would then have them handed out to students at the end of the week. I like the idea of students catching others being good and creating a positive environment. Sometimes children don’t hear positive things being said about them at home. I really want my classroom to be a loving, welcoming, and encouraging environment for all my students.…
