Here are a two more things that I’ve practiced to help build confident learners!
Goal Setting: You can help children feel confident and successful by creating realistic goals with them. By having conversations with about what their goals are, you can break up a task into doable sections and work with them to reach a goal one step at a time.
Create opportunity for success: Get to know your child or student. I mean, really get to know them. Once you understand how they perceive success, how they learn, and who they are, you can help them structure their learning and build successful experiences for them. This doesn’t necessarily mean making something “easier” or “harder”. Creating opportunities for success can be done by simply being flexible and open to new routes of assessment or practice.
The joy of learning. Together.
