Helping children to boost their confidence can be as easy and listening to them, and modeling positive attitudes. Check out more quick tips for building confident learners below!
Listen, Don’t Interrupt: Listen to children when they are processing something new. It’s very tempting to interrupt their process in order to correct! I know. It’s hard. But stop yourself and allow them to find their own errors. If they don’t find the errors after they’ve worked on a task for a bit, you can go in and ask them about where they might have made a mistake. This allows them autonomy and gives them responsibly for their own learning.
Be positive and have fun! Nothing is more degrading to the learning experience than a nasty or impatient adult. Modeling positive learning attitudes will make a huge difference in a child’s mindset about their own education.
