Throughout the years children go through many changes and this will affect the way that they participate and learn in the classroom. Since these changes are occurring teachers have to ensure that they are prepared to deal with the changes, and that they can effectively incorporate strategies to promote healthy development of the students. Students learn different at each and every stage in their development and this paper will describe their temperament and personality development and how to manage a classroom with these changes occurring. It will also describe strategies for promoting psychosocial, moral, and physical development in the classroom.
