The Logic of Young Children's (Nonverbal) Behaviour.
Singer, Elly
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v10 n1 p55-65 2002
Discusses teachers' sensitivity in the context of young children's peer conflicts. Explains that young children need to experience their own actions as logical and sound and that they co-construct logic-in-action (procedural knowledge) long before they can verbalize their logic. Maintains that teachers who do not respect children's logic often aggravate children's conflicts. Suggests ways to strengthen children's tendency to de-escalate peer conflicts and protect joint play.
