Reply to "Discussions: Preteens in Rotation, Intergenerational Rotation, and Spiritual Development"

Preteens - helping first graders

The first year of using the rotation, we experienced the same problems with our then fifth and sixth graders.

Now that we are in our fourth year, that attitude has disappeared.

I often combine sixth graders with first grade if I think a workshop will be particularly challenging for the younger children. The sixth grade is then given the added responsibility of working with their younger classmates. We also use the older children to assist with opening exercises. They respond well when they feel they are needed and have a position where younger children can depend on them.
