Tip 43 – Help your students have as many positive experiences each day as possible.
Be positive. While it is easy to point out when something goes wrong, it is more difficult to notice when all is well. Turn yourself into a success detective. Outwardly acknowledge simple things like putting an item in the right place or sitting up straight. Such recognition will make your students feel happy and important. The more you catch your students being good, the more happy times you will all have together.
All experiences find their way into memory. Once in memory, they continue to affect future behavior. Positive experiences lead to more positive ones, and that is the goal.
