“Students learn appropriate behaviour in the same way a child who doesn’t
know how to read learns to read… through instruction, practice, feedback and encouragement.”
Positive Behaviour Support
Educators are increasingly taking on responsibility for children’s emotional and social development in addition to achieving curriculum outcomes. The research shows:
- Educators are key attachment figures for children.
- When children have strong positive relationships with educators it has a significant impact on both their educational and life outcomes.
- Close relationships support learning and development.
- Children are more likely to learn when they feel cared for.
If a child has just one person they can connect with and who makes them feel safe and secure, they have a better chance of having a healthy adulthood.
“Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell where their influence stops.”
Henry Brooks Adams, American Historian
Specifically designed for the classroom
Our compliment cards have been developed to provide a fast and practical way for you to connect with your students through the use of positive and specific feedback.
Your students can keep the cards and be reminded of all the great things they’ve done. The cards can also be used as a valuable feedback tool for parents if students take them home.
