Not necessarily. Here are 8 ways teachers can talk less and get students talking more:. It can be uncomfortable to watch kids struggle to figure out an answer, but they need time and silence to work through it. Resist the urge to talk students through every step of a problem and instead just observe. Similarly, learn to love think time. Is that an effective method—how do you know? Does anyone use a different strategy? The idea here is to give kids a break from hearing your voice: they are far more likely to tune in to a unique sound than to a 20 word direction.
Resist the urge to lecture students every time someone forgets their materials, interrupts your lesson, or makes an inappropriate noise.
If you need to have a conversation about the behavior with a student or issue a consequence, try to wait for a break in your instruction rather than stop the whole class from learning while you discipline one. Who can sum this section up for us? Active learning strategies are a powerful way to get kids talking about their learning.

Their conversation will drive everything else! Can you give some pointers on getting slow and unmotivated learners into the info-acquisition position? Great post! Thank you. I am an English Department Head, and teach English, grades At the end of your post, you asked for some advice to add.
Practice what it looks like to actively listen to other students. Practice this as a class. Anne, thanks for taking the Listen then we ll chat to share so much helpful information. I love this point about not repeating what a student says. I tell my students that we all can have a voice in the discussion. We wait for the two students that I have that have speech problems to complete their thoughts. If they need what they said to be repeated, I do ask their permission to repeat it for them when it is necessary.
They are first graders learning to tools to carry on a big discussion. They love it. At the end of the day we take a few minutes to go over what we have learned in our day.

Thank you, Angela. As always, you are spot-on! The days that I spend talking too much wear me out. Most days, I try to zip it, so the kids can work. This was a refreshing reminder for the beginning of the year. How can I or should I approach this very nice teacher about her expectations of me??? One more? I would ask the teacher! I taught kindergarten for 2 years, and my favorite classroom volunteers and aides were the ones that jumped right in and helped.
F wants you to come to the carpet! Some kinder kids may be struggling from lack of sleep let them take a catnap. Others may be acting out for various reasons once I had a second grader tell me her feet were too hot—she took her shoes off at her desk. Ask them a question they are not expecting and then invite them into your activity. Or have them get a drink of water and come back—they might need the movement.
Some students are not ready for what we are trying teach in kindergarten.
We as parents, educators, and observers in the room need to speak our concerns. I hope you continue to volunteer and are enjoying your kindergarten experience this year!

I am currently a substitute teacher, and cover roughly 2ndth grades. I love how these tips are so transferable to the different grade levels! I definitely need to work on talking less, and listening more! I am making my job harder than it needs to be some days, and I feel that a lot of it is attributed to the fact that I talk so much!
Thank you again! Great point about making our jobs harder than they have to be. The kids should be doing just as much talking and work as we are, if not more! This is great information! I find I get more student talk when I simply ask for and answers followed by a swift why. Student always begin discussions over the why rather than the answer because why gets to the process not the product!
