SUPERFLEX ACADEMY LESSON: LEARNING TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS IN THE CLASSROOM!
This week students in Grades Third through Fifth practice more for keeping Brain Eater at bay in the classroom. Students discussed Expected Behaviors for Learning in a Group and Unexpected Behaviors That Prevent Learning. Our focus was:
LEARNING IN A GROUP
EXPECTED BEHAVIORS FOR LEARNING
Body is calm and turned toward the teacher or speaker.
Brain is thinking about the lesson and the person speaking.
Eyes are looking and thinking about the person speaking.
UNEXPECTED BEHAVIORS THAT PREVENT LEARNING
Body is turned away or has left the group.
Brain is thinking about other things, not focused on the lesson.
Eyes are looking and thinking about details in the room but not the lesson.
Please reinforce expected behaviors for learning in your home. Articles to help your child focus in and out of class.
