Workshop on: Using Positive Language with Young Learners
“Your words matter!” Negative words are confusing and can be powerful and impactful to young leaners. Using positive language can empower young children to make appropriate choices on their own and boost their self-esteem. It allows them to focus and learn from the positive behaviors instead of focusing on negative ones, which can often leave them feeling stressed and confused.
What we say to them and how we say is one of the most powerful and effective teaching tools.
