1. Create a set of requirements to students

Understand the students, praise more. Children are sensitive to adult praise and criticism. Praise and criticism are so magical, especially for the thinking of young children in the early years, every word a teacher can make a difference to them, I've also tried, when I criticized a student for not being serious, the others kept telling,and when I said, "let's see who did the best job today,"everyone immediately focused.
3. Create the environment
Create a positive and harmonious classroom. Psychology suggests that people are more receptive to things when they are in a good mood. Therefore, a good classroom atmosphere is very important. We should respect students'personality and creative spirit, get along with them as equals, and stimulate their thirst for knowledge and creation with our trust and concern. In the process of education, the teacher is the leader and the student is the subject. Teaching and learning are related and dependent on each other. The so-called"teaching and learning benefit each other".

4. Teaching approach
Rich and flexible teaching methods to stimulate students’ learning. According to the age characteristics of students in the lower grades, interesting things are more likely to attract students'interest and maintain their attention. For those students who are strongly required to memorize things by rote, students tend to execute them mechanically, but they are distracted and unable to concentrate on their study,Therefore, when the whole class is noisy, the teacher should also look for the reason myself,and that was: was your class attractive enough? Pupils'attention span is not long, the classroom to do a loose one tight, relaxation and balance, is what we should pay attention to.
5. No teachers’ pets
The last one must treat all students equally. According to the survey of teachers' personality traits,' fairness and objectivity are regarded as one of the most important qualities an ideal teacher in students'eyes. They most hope that teachers treat all students equally and do not discriminate between them. They are not satisfied that teachers favor some students or discriminate against others based on their likes and dislikes. Fairness is the basis for children to trust teachers, and also the basis for teachers to teaching activities.
