Social Emotional Development: Targeted Interventions and Supports
Using a peer buddy approach
One way a teacher can provide additional support to a child is for a teacher to set up a peer buddy approach. With this approach, the child is paired with a buddy who can help support the child who is having difficulty with a particular routine or activity. For example, if a child is having a difficult time remembering the expectations during circle time, a buddy could be paired with that child to help remind her to sit on her carpet square and follow directions.
