The Gradual Release of Responsibility
We started working on the GRR today. This is a way for us to track how independent we are and how much we rely on adults to do things for us. There are some things that we cannot do for ourselves, like cooking and driving. But, there are many things, easy things, that we could start doing ourselves even in Year 6. Things like using an alarm clock to wake up in the morning, packing our own school bags, checking our own schedules, making sure we have what we need each day, remembering to do our homework.
Today, we started reflecting on our lives and putting cards on the GRR to think about how independent we are already.
