Encouragement plays a vital role in helping, boosting children to behave appropriately and keeps them motivated. They feel involved in the lesson and welcomed in the class. You can achieve the positive response by encouraging pupil who are struggling with the lesson. Encouragement helps pupil identify their strengths which can help them build up self esteem. I would encourage the children to follow the instructions given for the lesson and rewarding them for their good behaviour as well as sanctions, if needed.
In my program I want children to be independent and make positive choices. I help them do this by offering children several choices throughout the day. I make it easy for them to remember which choices are appropriate by offering firm, friendly reminders, and using positive language. When children are having a hard time making good choices or solving a problem, I ask them questions about the

The principle of a positive relationship with Children, young people and adults is to be comfortable with the person you are talking with and trust them.
Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with Children Young people Adults Ans: Importance of effective communication with Children Communication is a key factor in developing positive relationships with human beings,the importance of effective communication with children can never be denied. Being a teaching assistant ,you have to model yourself in a best possible way to communicate with children as they learn and absorb your methods of communication. In order to develop and maintain positive relationships with children ,I have to communicate politely and clearly so that they can understand me. By using simple vocabulary and positive body language I can get their attention more easily and my friendly approach would make me trustworthy for them and they can discuss their problems or share their ideas with me. For example,in my placement,my friendly and polite attitude towards reception children makes it easy for them to bring their complaints to me;if they are hurt or hit by somebody.
By doing this you are creating a good example for pupils who will therefore learn from you on how to communicate positively with others. When communicating successfully with parents and staff you are then more likely to work as a team to ensure that pupils will be able to gain maximum benefit from learning, which is the ultimate goal as a teaching assistant. 1.2) Explain the principles of relationship building with children, young people and adults. In order to build good relationships with others it is important to have a warm, friendly and caring attitude to others. Others need to feel relaxed and comfortable in your company and feel as if they can bring up any concerns they have.
By working together the outcomes for the young people in my care will be better than it would otherwise by working alone. This would include active involvement and sharing of care decisions. The staff can share and agree on the aims and processes of what is to be achieved and to come to mutual understanding of any disagreements with decisions that are to be made. There always needs to be clear communication, openness and honesty, trust and respect for all care staff working with the young people to ensure that the best outcomes are made for the young people
He refers to a term called scaffolding which means when support of some kind is given from a teacher or caregiver to do things they cannot otherwise do alone. I really like Lev’s way of thinking about experience and development. He believed that children grow from experiences so we as the care giver should provide them a great and full learning environment. I myself think young children learn from the experiences they have and interaction with others helps them grow and develop. I think that children learn the best through hands on and how we as teachers teach them.
Effective Communication is important with pupils because it maintains a good relationship between the Teaching and the pupil when developing these positive relationships. Children want to be in an honest and trustworthy environment. If they don’t feel that they can trust you they will find it hard to approach you and this could affect the child’s learning. Having a positive relationship will allow the child to feel more comfortable around the T/A which will inevitably create a good learning atmosphere for everyone. Consistency and Patience will help you build this relationship.
Trust is a big part of building a relationship with people, especially with children who are under your care. In my own experience of building relationships with children – students in my case – I found that having a friendly, open nature works best in gaining their friendship and trust. Children respond well to someone who is approachable and this is the only way to get them to co-operate with you. I have taught several children with social/personality disorders and although at the start of our relationship it was challenging to gain their confidence, I managed to build and maintain a strong friendship with them by being able to relate to them will and approach them with a bright, positive attitude. Maintaining a relationship with someone is very important also as it keeps you in contact with others.
