Every year Rivers Class parents look forward to their child making new friends. The teachers provide opportunities for students to get to know each other.
Everyone has a partner for activity time. With this partner each child visits the teacher activities – this week drama, drawing, and cutting.
After completing the teacher activity the children choose an independent activity with a friend or by themselves.
Research shows that intentionally forming small groups (such as partner pairs) facilitates conversations that deepen student and teacher learning. Partner pairs nurture preschool students’ capacity to learn together, practice communication, develop friendships, learn to compromise.
