Of course, you should warn students sometimes.

Hey Yukiko, Masaki seems to say "I don't want to hear you". You should talk toward one who doesn't want to hear from you."

Or,

Yukiko, just ask Masaki like,
"What do you think about it, Masaki."

In some cases, you need to take these kinds of handling.
But, as I was writing in past several blogs, in the small situation, You must have an ability to control the student's awarenesses by shifting your basic standing position or something.

The teacher is standing very next to Masaki. The teacher is listening to Yukiko's speech at the place. So Masaki has no choice but just listening to her.
When she finishes speaking, you just glance at Masaki a little,
"I see. It was a really interesting story, wasn't it? Write something you are thinking about her opinions on your notebook."
You can proceed with your class like this.

For example, you may try to make the student say something,
"I think Yukiko has a nice opinion on her notebook. Yukiko, Please say it to the class."
But in your classroom, Masaki tends not to focus on the speech of peers. So you can shift your standing place nearby Masaki casually before Yukiko speaks.
That is all you have to do.

Sometimes, you can go nearby the student who is speaking.
You are saying "Hey Taro, you wrote a very nice opinion didn't you? Just stand up and read it aloud", while walking toward the student.
During the students read it, you are standing next to him/her nodding positively. At that time you should make eye contact with the whole class. When the student finishes reading, you come back to the front again saying like "OK everybody, Let's get writing something you think about his/her opinion".
That's it. Just doing like this will make the students focus on the speakers.
You don't have to say to the students "Listen carefully!" etc.

By just doing such things I mentioned in the previous blog, sometimes a student would be able to ease and calm significantly.
I'm not sure the true meaning, but I think they may be able to feel some sense like connecting to the teacher.
Especially if you are making a good relationship with the student, it would work great just by making such a standing position.
On the contrary, if the student doesn't trust you or he/she hates you, it would have the opposite effect.
And of course, it's not natural to stand nearby the exact same student always. You should shift your standing place depending on the context obviously.

If you have a specific student whom you are thinking in your mind.

1. You stand nearby his/her desk as if it didn't matter.
2. You don't see him/her. You don't make eye contact.
3. Depending on the condition, you can place your hand on his/her desk naturally. (not always)
4. You should make eye contact with the whole class.
5. You proceed with your class lesson at the place.
6. In the case of after making some instructions to let them do something, you can tap his/her shoulder casually, or you can say something a little to him/her. (not always)

I'll show you the basics of basic related to "Teacher's intentional standing position".
Sometime, you should stand nearby some specific student. someone who is a little restless, someone who tends to talk too much...
Especially if you have students who need special supports, probably you may let them sit on the forward side of the classroom.
You can be near such a kid consciously, and you can proceed with your lesson at the place.

Teacher’s Position in the classroom. Basic of basic = The chain connecting blackboard and teacher's desk.

The teacher even who can't move from his desk could write something on the blackboard.
"Who can say something?"
And he points out one student who raises the hand, and writes it on the blackboard.
Just only when he writes something, he is a little bit away from the desk and turns back from students. And he comes back to his desk like being gravitated. It seems like he is connected with the desk by the chain.
Only the children who are good at learning raise their hands and speak, and the other children who are not good at learning are absent-minded. They are placing their heads on the desks.
Instruction plan on the desk, Teaching strategy just on letting students raise their hands, Meaningless writing on the blackboard... All these things should be thrown away.
You should plan your "standing position" more intentionally.
