Just as good management enhances learning by creating a good environment for teaching, similarly effective instruction contributes to a well-managed class. Proper instructions help in preventing failures, boredom and confusion in the classroom. Activities are an integral part of the teaching-learning process.
Seating arrangements are also imperative for effective classroom management. Each one was given the task to suggest different seating arrangements and their advantages and disadvantages. One of the most important challenges for a teacher is to manage time. A table relating to time management was explained.
Management of the student-teacher relationship is the cornerstone of classroom management. If a teacher has a good relationship with students, then students readily accept the rules and procedures and the disciplinary action that follows their violation. The importance of building a rapport with the children was discussed.
It was a fun-filled and enriching session, full of hands’-on activities for the teachers to indulge in and learn from. Teachers look forward now to applying these strategies effectively in the classroom.

Teachers Learned The following happiness points
Happiness Point 1: Opposites compliments each other
Without darkness, we cannot appreciate Light. Without Sadness, we would not know happiness. We need to accept and value the bad to appreciate the good. Life is fascinating when it is full of ups and downs. We need to understand that our universe has a beautiful balance of opposites.
Happiness Point 2: Accept people and situation as they are
Do not spend your life reacting to unfavorable situations. Life is going to throw some curve balls and we need to respond to them in a matter that will help others and us in the situation. A panic or angry reaction will only make the situation worst.Similarly, we tend to compare a person with others that creates a lot of bitterness in relationships.
Happiness Point 3: Don’t be a football of other people’s opinion
People worry a lot about what others say about them and this burden of other people’s opinion forces a person to take some very wrong decisions. I have written a detail article on the mind trap that will help anyone who feels trapped because they cannot ignore other people’s opinion.
Happiness Point 4: Take Mistake as Mistake
When someone commits a mistake, do not go blaming that person for it. It will create a very negative impression in that person minds but on the other hand if we consider the mistake as mistake the person feels more responsible about his/her actions and would never repeat it.
Happiness Point 5: Stay in the present moment
We should not waste our time thinking about the past to save our mind from painful memories or the future as it puts stress on our mind. Staying in the present helps focus on the actual task at hand.
