Dr. Kuther’s Chalk Talks
PART IV: Middle Childhood
Questions to Consider:
- How do the self-evaluations of children in middle childhood differ from the self-evaluations of children who are younger? What cognitive advancements might contribute to these differences?
- How do peers influence development during middle childhood? What cognitive advancements during this timeframe help children in their social relationships?
- Why is the transition to first grade such a dramatic change for children? What can be helpful for children who are making the transition from preschool to elementary school?
