Peer to Peer supports the district’s initiative to incorporate the 6Cs of deeper learning at an early age so students graduate with these skills. This month students at Mark Twain Elementary are working on collaboration through team building and embracing culture.
Once a year, students read Chrysanthemum and discuss how powerful words can be. The book teaches students that even though there may be an apology, words can leave lasting ‘scars.’ Through Peer to Peer sessions each week, students learn to value each other, accept differences, and build empathy toward one another.
Students are taught to be nice to each other by inviting others to sit by them, being open-minded to making new friends, and encouraging others to share their thoughts.
