P




P is for Peers.

I have touched on this in a previous 
post but I feel very strongly about 
peer interaction. There are so many
benefits to having peers in the room
or visit during the day.

For our students being with their 
peers provides them with a way to 
observe the world around them. 
When one of my student's goes to 
his Kindergarten class for two hours 
in the morning he follows their rules 
and expectations.
Whatever they are doing, he is doing.
It may be in a different way but he is 
going along. If it is a game, someone
may need to help him but he is play-
ing the game. When he goes to PE, 
Art, Music or Library he is expected 
to follow the rules in those classes.

For those students who come to our 
class to help, they learn about our 
kids, their likes and dislikes, how 
best to work with our kids, how to 
react if someone has a meltdown 
etc. They learn that our kids are 
cool. They learn that there is more 
to our kids than they thought. 
Friendships are developed and our 
kids come to expect their new friends 
daily.

So fun to see.
