Playworks is a leading nonprofit that brings safe and healthy play to children. One keystone element of the Playworks program is leveraging the power of play to encourage social emotional learning, which empowers kids with lifelong skills like empathy, leadership, and conflict resolution.

Chris Conard has been working with Playworks since 2007 and is continually inspired by the power of play in education. Beginning as a program coordinator in the Bay Area, he has worked his way up the Playworks ladder including such positions as the administrative associate and national expansion manager. He is excited to bring his love for Playworks to Salt Lake City and help others spread the power of play. Chris is continually motivated by the way play can be a vehicle for social change.

We also had the chance to talk to Maria Mottaghian and Aimee Brown from the Oregon Child Development Coalition about helping migrant students. You won't want to miss hearing their experiences and advice. You can find it on our main blog.

If you enjoy the podcast and can review us on iTunes that would be amazing of you! We really appreciate your reviews as they help us continue to make the podcast and help other teachers to find us.

3_plus_one_ways_to_not_show_frustration_400.jpg

Do you ever just get so incredibly frustrated with one or two kids?

Today’s show is all about recognizing when you are frustrated and how to deal with it. Especially, when you know that it is one kid who is really driving you nuts.

frustrated_350.png

 

So here are my 3 + 1 ways of not showing that you are frustrated:

  1. Put something happy on the wall behind the child who frustrates you.
  2. Just before the kids arrive remind yourself of something positive about the child.
  3. Make a list of positive attributes of the child and keep that list where only you can see it and revisit it during the class.

Plus One…

Put yourself in timeout….

 

Really, put you in timeout…go outside, take a deep breath, watch something funny, play at recess or during lunch with the kids, or how about play an instrument with the band class or participate in an art class…See where I am going with this?

 

6_signs_that_you_are_frustrated_with_the_kids_2.jpg

 

So let’s talk about 6 signs of Adult Frustration

  1. Eye rolling
  2. You take a deep breath or you sigh right before talking with one specific student
  3. Exasperated statements directed at one student
  4. Angry body language
  5. Ignoring and only responding when you finally have to
  6. Overreacting

We have to get control of ourselves.

When you recognize and admit to yourself that the kid is driving you nuts then you need to take the steps to help you control you.

Look at my 6 signs of frustration and then take a look at my 3 + 1 ways of overcoming your frustration.

You will be glad that you did.

Have an awesome week!
