Body language can offer some really helpful cues when trying to stay one step ahead of our kids–whether in the classroom or at home. Being aware of what our kids’ body language is saying can tip us off to the need for a change in pace. Look for clues like excessive fidgeting, darting eyes, or blank stares. Upon noticing these or other body language cues, try incorporating some movement, throwing in an activity, or taking a game break. It may even be time to wrap things up for the day–while you can still do so on a positive note–praising your kids for their hard work.
