Savor the Silence!

Image

Don’t be afraid of the silence. What seems like empty space for you is often essential processing time for your students. Also consider counting to 3 or 4 when asking students to respond to give them thinking time. You can adjust this for different levels. Consider the quiet patience of this adorable bear and channel it into your teaching.
