I am a veteran teacher, but sure would like ideas for a
sweet child. I have this little girl who is from a very
sheltered family of a different culture. She has had GREAT
difficulty interacting with her peers. The other children
are very kind to her and often invite her to join them in
any type of play or be their learning partner, but she
adamantly refuses their invitations. When we are on the
playground she does not run, play by herself or with others,
but stands by herself the entire time unless I am alone.
When she sees I'm alone she will come talk to me.
This brings me to the other point, she NEVER talks about any
of our learning or activities in class. Her only topic of
conversation is about her mom picking her up, something her
family has done (very limited too) or her new baby brother.
I know what I should talk to her parents about, but am not
sure how to approach it. Her mother is VERY protective.
This board is always full of good ideas. Any suggestions??
