Peer Engagement Poster
Some children may struggle to engage with peers at recess. Typical elementary school students are engaged with peers 60% or more of the time at recess. Children who are consistently engaged with peers less than 60% of the time at recess may be experiencing social difficulties. Work to help children engage and have fun together. Get creative!
