Get Their Attention First!

This Sparked Me!

When I want one of the kids to do something- it is much easier on me and them if I get the attention first! Often, I'm thinking of what I want them to do and just start talking thinking they are listening to me... then, I usually end up repeating myself and being frustrated. This way- they hear it!
