How to foster emotional intelligence & reduce anti-social behaviour in your classroom

As a grade R and foundation phase teacher how do you cope with negative behaviour in your classroom that affects the
learning of all your learners? Do you sometimes feel helpless when behaviour learned at home seems to take over the
classroom environment?

How do you foster an environment where your learners can GROW and THRIVE and LEARN happily? And how
much does ‘good behaviour’ fall into the remit of what teachers do? Do you even have time to start focusing on this in class?
If you have asked yourself any of these questions, don't be discouraged.

And right here in South Africa.
