Many problems that exist in Primary classes are age-related. By studying traits of children the same age as your class, you may solve many reverence or behavior problems. Your expectations may be unreasonable. Read below to find ways you can adjust your expectations appropriately.
I took excerpts from Teaching, No Greater Call and the old Primary Manuals to write these articles. I’ve put age characteristics beside the solution so you can find help more easily.
Feel free to use these articles as handouts for new teachers or during Stake Primary Leadership Training meetings. They provide good information on ways to avoid common behavior problems that occur at different stages of a child’s development.
Knowing how to solve behavior problems related to age can help you teach separate Junior and Senior Primary sharing time lessons. Understanding the traits of each age-group can help you adapt lessons better for the 4-7 and 8-11 age groups.
You definitely can solve age-related behavior problems in your Primary class!
