What to do?


Recommended Posts

Could anyone help with this sittuation. At singing time with a small group of young children we sang nursery rhymes and used prop. E.g five little monkey - having five monkey finger puppets. One of the children started crying because he wanted the puppet, so the practitioner let him hold one, then he wanted all five and ever other puppet we had. When not given all of them he proceeded to cry very loudly so that none of the children could hear the singing. Could anyone advice what to do in the sittuation.

Must admit to not using props so much obviously we do have some but I tend to "use" the children - so 5 little monkeys 5 would stand up and do the actions while others are sitting and helping to sing, or if a small enough group all joining in with the actions at the same time, similarly 5 little ducks, one group of 6 children, one is mummy duck, the others are ducklings sent off one by one to go over the pond and far away Using own fingers for counting etc.

is this a general problem with him or was it just in this case?

if you wiggle a chocolate bar in front of a child and then say "you cant have it" you're probably get a similar reaction! I guess I would suggest that maybe giving him the monkey was a bit of an error! :o if you're going to give it to one then really they should all have one, bit unfair that the child who misbehaved is the one who was rewarded :blink: ;)
