If you are teacher, then please ask other experienced teachers, how they manage their classroom? Get some creative ideas which are interesting for the little kids.
Now a days animated stories, poems are shown in big / medium screen with music, so that kids could concentrate to learn and listen the things.
Also tell them, "follow the rules, and I will give you stars as you are best one"
please draw stars to all of them so that they feel happy and will try to follow the instructions. Do this for once in a week.
When it is story time, please have little toys to describe the story in better way. Hope this will help you little.
Do you know what is inner peace?
