Yelling is not an effective teaching practice in preschool

Whether you call it yelling, hollering, or raising your voice – the reality is, yelling, hollering, or raising your voice to get the attention of your students is not an effective teaching practice.

Yelling makes you grumpy.
Yelling makes you tired.
Yelling increases your stress.

Yelling makes your students grumpy.
Yelling makes your students tired.
Yelling increases your student’s stress.

When you raise your voice often, the kids learn to tune it out.
Yelling models poor communication skills.
Yelling is disrespectful, intimidating, unprofessional, and hurtful.

The moral of this story is….

If what you have to say is important enough to hear…

Then find a way to say it so the kids will want to listen!
