POSITIVE ADJECTIVES – Can the use of positive adjectives in the classroom make a difference in children’s well-being and their behavior? Definitely YES.
Have you ever heard of a perfect classroom? I’ve not, but if you have, then that’s probably a myth.
As a teacher, you may have noticed that every student is different. Some are good in academics, some are good in sports. Some have excellent social skills, while the others take the time to open up. Some are cheerful and zesty yet some remain silent. Some are excited about the class and some just want to hear the bell go off.

Trust me. When I say that it’s boring to stay still in a classroom for an hour, I really do mean it!
If I had a dollar for every time I caught my students dozing of or scanning their phones in my class, I’d gladly give up my salary (wink). You peeps agree with me?
Teaching ESL is not easy and I feel sorry for the learners too who have to cope with a dozen other problems besides learning a new language. A month into teaching my new batch, it reflected in their behavior. I wasn’t happy.
I had to try a new approach. So, I buckled up and folded my sleeves to work on introducing a new learning technique.
Enter, Gallery Walk.
Gallery walk is not something new and is quite popular among teachers and students. It’s a learning technique where students learn by walking around the classroom. What again? Yes. Moving in groups.
Here’s how it works…
Here is an activity I use occasionally in order to revise collocations and lexical chunks from a series of lessons. Very happy that it has been published here: http://www.onestopenglish.com/community/lesson-share/winning-lessons/speaking/lesson-share-the-naming-game/555891.article
