It seems like ADD and ADHD abound in our classrooms. If you have a spirited child in yours, you can really make a difference in how they perceive school and in how their classmates interact with them. Befriend the spirited child in your class. They often feel unliked. Seat them at the front of the class and away from window that could distract them. Or, if this child likes to move around and you have room in the class, give him or her two desk assignments and let the child move from one to the other.
