The 7 roles of a teacher, part 3: THE CHAMELEON

Small children are easily distracted and lose interest easily. This is why it is so important to change tasks very often and react to their moods. You must be like a CHAMELEON showing adaptive skills and having many faces. Put on one face when presenting a story or building an appropriate atmosphere and another when giving commands to your students which require energetic actions. When your students get out of control, surprise them, change moods and styles and you will always find a way to get through to them.

How to be a CHAMELEON?

  • Change styles of presentation or how you  lead into a task depending on its character
  • Change the mood if you feel the children are growing tired or disinterested
  • Put on different faces to dramatise stories and other texts or when
  • Interacting with children or Eddie to make sure students are involved
