May Blog: How Teachers Can Help Children Overcome Shyness

How Teachers Can Help Children Overcome Shyness

This month's blog is How Teachers Can Help Children Overcome Shyness.

Shyness is a feeling of emotion where a person feels timid or intimidated in a situation. Many people don't know the basics of this feeling and tend to get confused that maybe it is in a particular case that it is triggered. However, shyness is not a temporary early childhood phase that you can grow out of with time. It is an inhabited feeling that may start as early as in infancy and may take up your lifetime to overcome.

According to statistics published in this regard, 10 to 15% of newborns are born with shyness as an inhabited trait. In addition to this, 40 to 60% of adults say they are currently still regarded as a shy person. Thus, these numbers represent that not many people are born with shyness but develop the feeling over time. T

herefore, to nip in the bud sometime before it fully blooms, this month's blog covers eight ways teachers can work with their young students to overcome shyness.

Guest blogger Claudia Jeffrey is currently working as an Assistant Manager For Research & Development at Crowd Writer. As an experienced pre-school teacher, she understand feelings associated with the young ones well. She shares her opinions online through her personal blog.



App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for May is Google Keep - Notes and lists by Google LLC ( iOS and Android ).


  • Capture, edit, share, and collaborate on your notes on any device, anywhere

  • Add notes, lists, photos, and audio to Keep.

  • Organize your notes with labels and colors.

  • Set and forget. Get reminded about a note at the right time or place.

  • Record a voice memo and have it automatically transcribed.

  • Grab the text from an image to help you quickly find that note again through search.

WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT

Need to remember to pick up some groceries? Set a location-based reminder to pull up your grocery list right when you get to the store. Need to finish a to-do? Set a time-based reminder to make sure you never miss a thing.

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Next time you go to the store, share your shopping list on Keep and watch as items get checked off in real time. No need for text messages back and forth. Get things done together, faster.

FIND WHAT YOU NEED, FAST

Quickly filter and search for notes by color and other attributes like lists with the label “To-dos”, audio notes with reminders or just see shared notes. Find what you're looking for even faster, and let Keep do the remembering for you.

ALWAYS WITHIN REACH

Keep works on your phone, tablet and computer. Everything you add to Keep syncs across your devices so your important stuff is always with you.

Try Google Keep on the web at http://keep.google.com and find it in the Chrome Web Store at http://g.co/keepinchrome.

Google Keep - Notes and lists is available for Apple and Android devices.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 11.0 and watchOS 2.0 or later on Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android version varies based on your Android device.
