Aaliyah’s learning through mathematics

Mixing with my friends

Student Aaliyah Date 6 June 2008
Observer Julie (teacher)

Today, I noticed that Aaliyah is continuing to develop positive interpersonal relationships with the other children in the class. She has started joining in with what they are doing in a positive way that contributes to everyone’s learning. She calmly collects what she needs and is able to ask if she can join in with their activities. They are starting to respect her as a friend and include her.


Aaliyah asked if she could sit next to Jennifer and take part in the activity before school started. Here she is practising the shape of ‘u’ with Jennifer.

Aaliyah is looking at a browsing book while sitting with her classmates on the mat rather than sitting on her own in a separate part of the classroom.
