One classroom management technique used by teachers in lower grade levels is to instruct students to “make a bubble mouth”. Children find this fun to hold air in their mouth bubbling their cheeks, which leads to instant silence. Children cannot talk as their mouths are closed and it is a way for the teacher to get their attention so they can listen.
How many times a day do you run into people who cut you down or say something which you don’t agree with? It is easy to make a comment back. A better practice to get into would be to “chew it” and remain silent—especially when there is steam which can be agitated to a greater argument with an unkind response back. Practice Choo-It Love Express. Choo away cut-downs and the impulse to respond. Express kind by choosing to choo it.
