Thank you to those of you who have posted answers to my questions about what to say and how to say it. I have never really liked saying, "I like the way Susie is standing in line. I like the way Johnie is facing forward." etc. This type of talking is used by many of the more senior teachers in my school; their classrooms always seem well under control so I have tried using the language but have never been comfortable with it. I am so glad to know why it made me uncomfortable and that there are other ways to talk to children that will work better for me.
You have given me a lot to think about. Thank you for sharing your expertise.
