Plan your practices - take 10minutes to write
down things you want to accomplish
Change tasks - if a kid ask "When are we done?"
or "Can we take a water break?", it is time to change the dddrill game(don't
use the word drill, stick to games).
No dddDrills - use games that involve all
players. Try not to make them stand in a line, I know this is hard sometimes
but work hard to figure out how to get the skill your trying to teach into a
game format. If the game requires a child to sit out, change the game so
that no child sits.
Take notes during game (or right after game) -
this will help you with your practices. Do not only write down the bad things,
write down the really good things. When practice time arrives, tell them the
good things, then tell them the things we need to
get some books - there are alot of books out
there, so read them in your spare time.
stop screaming - the kids are learning the
encouragement - no explaination
