Best tips for a Nursery teacher

    I have been an EYFS teacher for a little over 10 years and I also use songs in my classroom. Whether it's tidying up or lining up, I find that it really helps the children listen to you more.
    And when they are being noisy or just super chatty my go-to favourite song to make then listen to me is 'If you're happy and you know it!'. I just sing it loudly and they usually clap their hands and then wait for my next instruction.

    Also like someone suggested earlier, when you notify them that they will transition into the next activity, it usually helps the children know what's going on. I usually do the count down from 5 mins, then 2 mins and then 10 secs.
    I hope this is useful! :)

    Love this tip. I love having families send photos that can be displayed and shared during circle. It's very helpful to ease anxiety in young learners, and it's a great social/emotional "getting to know each other" activity.
