Positivity is must in any environment and it becomes easier to create it when your attitude is positive towards your students. So listen to all the problems of every student and make them feel comfortable by your loving and caring nature. Your body language should be positive and never neglect any query or ignore any student in your class. Try to be their friend than a teacher.

Try to use please and thank you while conversing with the students, initially this might not bear any positive results but with time you will notice that the environment of the class is turning positive as the students will provide respect to each other by just imitating you.
4. Recognize and have eye contact:-
Each and every student is important as if one of them is negative then the whole environment of a class will shatter, so it’s essential that you should recognize everyone and talk with them having an eye contact so that these young kids can feel that you are providing them the importance and their verdict also matters. This will make the classroom more energetic and optimistic as every student will be happy and satisfied.
5. Never allow teasing or bullying in the class:-
From the very beginning, the students should be sure that they are entering a place which is safe for them. Their class is the best place where they can learn, play and express themselves fully. If there is any bullying or teasing then the students will never like to come to the class. So the teachers should be very prompt and alert. If they notice and think like this then you should immediately find out a solution to this and try to mold the mind of the student to some activities which will deviate them from the negative things.
6. Ask for positive feedback:-
Every week conduct one session in which every student should be given a white piece of paper and should be asked to write one positive thing about the other students in the class. Once you collect all the papers then start discussing about the positive points of the students and then thank all the students for being so positive in the class.
7. Greet every student at the entry gate:-
Every day the students should be greeted while entering and leaving the classroom. This has a positive impact on the students’ mind and he feels that he is welcomed and recognizable in the classroom. Slowly the child also starts greeting his teachers, peers and others whom he meets regularly.
