This way it is possible to gain trust and respect, and therefore be able to help them in their school life. One way of doing this is in class time, especially during observation sessions. It is important to take a ‘step back’ and observe the pupil, not to provide too much structure to the activity and also not to intervene and let them complete an activity in the manner in which they believe it should be done. By doing this the relationship between pupil and teacher/teaching assistant is more trusting, and respectful. The pupil will learn what acceptable behaviour is, and when they are at the boundaries of what is deemed appropriate.
1. “Teach children positive social skills and provide them with skill training to cope with their negative emotional states and deal with the problems and stressers that they face daily.”This basically means, teach children how to be friends with each other, how to share their belongings, how to respect others' belongings, and how to communicate. If they start displaying inappropriate anger coping skills, teach them in the moment how to deal with it properly. Counting to 10 may seem cliché, but it actually can work. Stepping away from the situation until the child has calmed down; there are many things that can be taught early that will be more effective then teaching them at a required by the courts class at the age of 39.
Collaboration with families also adds to mutual problem solving and shared decision making. Teachers, schools and districts can earn family support through effective collaboration. Students benefit from parental involvement by showing strong feelings of self-worth and self-satisfaction. Parents are able to learn skills which assist in improving their child’s academic growth. For example, they can learn behavior management techniques and communication strategies.

Customized Learning Theory Angelique Young Liberty University Introduction There are many ideas and theories on what makes the best learning environment. Things to consider are teacher-student relationships, teacher-parent relationships, parent-student relationships and lastly, student-self relationships. Each relationship creates an environment that is intertwined with the other to create the best learning environment for the student. When one or more of these relationships fracture, the environment for the student is, at best retarded, if not crippled. By understanding the dynamic of these relationships, a teacher understands the development and learning of students and seeks opportunities to positively support not only their intellectual development, but also social and personal as well.
TDA 2.9 1.1 Describe the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour. Behaviour In my setting it is there priority to build the self esteem and confidence of all the children which is the aim of this policy.

Effective communication is fundamental in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults alike. In the role of Classroom Assistant it is vital to develop good, appropriate relationships with pupils, colleagues, parents and any other professional third party agencies involved in a child’s care and education. To provide a conducive learning environment, adults in the classroom must work together by communicating clearly and professionally with each other, both verbally and non-verbally. This will avoid confusion and inconsistency during lessons. For example I find it essential to discuss the day’s lesson plan and targets with my class teacher.
When effective communication is missing, this can cause teachers to misunderstand or be ignorant of the child’s needs; further more pupils may not feel listened too. This could result in the pupil feeling worried or angry. Teachers need to form positive approach and effective communication to help children understand the boundaries expected of them. Sharing information means parents develop a clear appreciation of their child’s true strengths, showing the child that parent and teacher both want the ultimate goal for the child, leaving the child to feel comfortable about making mistakes and acting accordingly to put them right and voicing this to the teachers to allow teachers to help in areas needed. The two way key effective communications are verbal and nonverbal.
Unit 209 Support children and young people behaviour How you could be an effect role model to children and young people In your placement in the school I believe I could be an effective role model by setting a good example to the children I work with. As studies have shown, children learn more from copying behaviour around them, rather than just being told what to do. Children are mostly influenced by teachers, parents, friends and support workers. All the adults should be aware of their own behaviour and mannerism, and the effect could have on the children. Children can pick up behaviour and attitudes from adults from around them .For this reason, I feel my appearance must always be presentable and my clothes should be appropriate to wear in a school setting.
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.
