## Reflection: Modeling Sorting by Kind - Section 5: Closure

Modeling does not always have to be done by the teacher. Your kids can model for each other and often times they learn more than if they are just listening to the teacher. Asking kids of all levels that firmly understand the skill can aid other kids who are struggling by explaining and modeling their thinking. The kids always seem to be able to understand each other. Maybe it's because their on the same level or because they speak in a simplified way that we can't always get down to. Either way, it's important to have kids share their thinking so they can learn from each other.
