The presence of a teacher is very important. They should move around in the class and not led the child or pair to distract. They should be talking to them about their task and give them deadlines or homework for the same. After they should move to other child and they should make sure that they come back to other children too. Teachers should say child’s name for examples which will never lead them to distract.


The teachers should give 5-6 minutes breaks so that children can refresh themselves and can understand the topic or lecture going on in the class.
