    Positive Climate: Is when a child can feel safe coming to you for anything. Also talking to a child with respect, for example when a child is talking to loud instead of telling the child be quite or close your mouth. You can say things like let's use are inside voices or friends if you can't hear our friends were too loud. Another way positive climate interaction is when a child is sad uses words to encourage them to express themselves.

    A positive climate is where us teachers do our best to make sure each child is safe, well taken care of and comfortable along with providing  learning lessons. Having a calm and positive attitude and getting down to each child's eye level helps with making each child comfortable. It's also great to have a positive climate to help with every students feelings and helping with their cognitive skills.
