To be a kaiako or not to be!
As we work alongside the children we are always role modelling our ways of being and we need to remember children will make their own interpretation of what they see. We always encourage children to give things a go but I did wonder by writing beside Summer and Emily interrupted the work they were doing. When I first approached the girls at the table they were so engaged in their writing and trying so very hard to be accurate when writing their letters and words that it really made me think of what we do as teachers/kaiako. Next time I will be more aware and choose my time and space to join in!
