Most people agree that teachers must be both theoretically knowledgeable and inventive. They must be able to use a range of strategies, and they must also be able to invent new strategies. They must have some basic research-based routines for managing classes, but they must also be willing and able to break from the routine when the situation calls for change. They need to know about their own students, understanding the students in general about their particular ages, culture, social class and gender would make the child friendly situation in the classroom. There are some aspects should be identified in the areas of friendly teaching atmosphere and the learning quality; (1) the materials and programs appropriate for students’ grade level; (2) some teaching strategies that applied such as the effective teaching and evaluation, besides special ways and concepts are necessary to be considered for lower ability students.; (3) the characteristics and cultural backgrounds of learners. One of the key factor to be succeed in creating the friendly child learning environment is as a teacher we need to know ourselves, our strengths and our blind spot as well as our own cultural identity.
