Parenting notes: the use of small small step stool like 11 inch step stool
After lunch, the children sit under the classroom window, or chat or find three or two good friends to do clap games and stone, scissors, cloth games, or quietly read some books, they are waiting for the children who have not finished eating quickly, can go out to bask in the sun and eat fruit. The individual active boys were impatient and stood up in the small step stool to look at the scenery outside the window. Some children have followed suit, and more and more children are standing in small small step stools. This is neither safe nor hygienic.
So I cleverly asked, "Children, do you say small step stools are used to step on?" "No, it's for sitting." The children replied. The children who stood on the small step stools came down embarrassed. "Yes, if you stand on a small small step stool, you will fall down by accident, and you will make such a beautiful little small step stool dirty and ugly!" After listening to what I said, the child who had just stepped on the small step stool gently wiped the small step stool with his hand.
"what's the use of that little small step stool?" I continue to ask questions, want the child to change a sitting posture, adjust the boring waiting atmosphere, "teacher, but also as a small train!" Replied Chen Wu. "Yes, let's take the train!" Listen to me, the children quickly lined up the small small step stools into a long row, one by one sat on the small small step stools, the front of the child also made wheels of the two little hands, indicating that he is the locomotive, and the children in the back, will also be very cooperative in the car.
“Stridulation, the train is on.”
"the wheels are rumbling, the train is speeding up."
"slow down. The train is coming in!"
"Brake, the train is in Shanghai, let's get off!
The children imitated excitedly, perhaps these are really not meaningful things in our adult eyes, but I see two words in the child's face, eyes, heart: happiness. Therefore, as teachers, we should be good at discovering the educational value implied in these small things and small events, seize the opportunity and actively guide us.
