' Let the fire burn ' (Remi_art)
In schools, Violation of class rules is something that does not always go unpunished. As a class teacher in a primary school, you will always have ' No noise making in the class', as the number one class rule, even when it's is the most violated rule in many Schools.
It's also a rule to the whole pupils that whenever you find a fellow pupil going against any rule , you should do well to report to any teacher. These rules , on the long run have made the boys to form the habit of always complaining and reporting. They don't care if it's for good or for bad. Unfortunately funny, Remigius has always been reported for making drawings on white papers with crayons all the time ( it's a rule not to draw unnecessarily , as it encourages littering). This time he was reported to me by a boy named Kachi ( most active boy in primary 3 ) .I stood up immediately, and move towards his desk to see what he has done this time.
Amazing enough, Remigius was replicating an image in one of his novels. As I saw this, I wanted to act negatively, because he has always littered the floor with papers while drawing. But at a second thought, I decided within myself to criticize him constructively , so I won't kill the baby fire of creativity in him.
However, I was with my phone, within seconds I captured moments , which he was not aware of and called him afterwards to meet me for some good nuggets. What am most happy about is that, he was done with the coloring as at on Friday and the picture is really amazing.
1) Allow kids to express what they have in mind, their instincts are most times amazing.
2) Criticize kids constructively, not destructively.
3) Caution them immediately when they do something bad.
4) Teach kids to know that there is time for everything.
