A Peer Checker (or Buddy) refers to a willing and capable peer to assist a student in some way…in this case, to help a student prepare for class and home assignments.
I have a student who is pretty disorganized and I always have to spend time with him before and after each math class to make sure he has his assignment, materials or homework etc. He is in 5th grade and I really think kids at this age should be able to do this on their own. His special education teacher feels he needs additional support to get himself organized but it is hard to do this when I have 28 other students in my class. Any ideas?
