One of the first theorists that I saw was being used was Erikson. Erikson was a theorist that believed that children develop in stages. Stage three of Erikson’s theory is initiative and guilt. This stage states that children tend to cling to adults and don’t develop good play skills. It seems that every time a certain paraprofessional leaves, a little girl in the class, would start to cry and she would not collaborate in any activities that involved groups, partners, or self-work. The same little girl would also only sit next to the paraprofessional as well. Now that I have been there for a while, when I leave she starts to cry as well because she doesn’t want me to leave. Bundle with Energy is another part of stage three that I have viewed.
