FREE MISC. LESSON - “Positive Phrases for Teachers”

by Mad Eye Moody Productions
5th - 10th Grade

After my first year in the classroom, I decided I was tired of yelling and screaming at my students to listen to me. I put together this list of phrases to use whenever students' behaviors were inappropriate and once I started using them, I noticed my students acting much more appropriately and arguing with me less. The phrases are worded in "I language" (i.e. instead of "Stop arguing with me!" I would say "I care too much about class learning to argue with you"). I had them on my clipboard, which I carried around the room with me, and whenever I would get frustrated, I would look down and use one of the phrases. These made a huge difference in my ability to manage my classroom and before I knew it, I wasn't yelling or screaming at my students anymore.

I hope they will help you, too!
