Children’s meetings

Engaging and interacting with childrenSlide2

Don’t be the sage on the stage!Slide3

Research in education shows that children are learning in meaningful ways when


They are engaged – the lesson is of interest to them

They are interacting – with people, objects, ideas and events (learning is a social activity)

The lesson is of an inquiry nature (lots of questions from you and them)

You use well presented and highly visible resources

There is a warm, positive atmosphereSlide4

Make it fun/enjoyable. If it’s boring to you it will be boring to them. Likewise if you’re having fun, chances are – so will they.

Relate to the children. Find out what they know already about the topic – you can use this to relate to them during the lesson.

Use their names – acknowledge them during the lesson



Provide hands-on activities – allowing them to interact with focal objects/resources

Allow them to interact with ideas/problems/challenges. Think things through – come to conclusions themselves.

Allow them to interact with events in the environment
