6-9 year-old Second Plane of Development

During this stage of development, we see the development of the “reasoning mind” where the 6-9 child has an unusual desire to know the reasons of things. Because there is a great thirst for knowledge, we offer the second plane child many seeds of knowledge and use of the power of imagination to captivate his interest and do further research to allow these seeds to germinate. The 6-9 child is also very interested in morality and what society (the child’s own group) considers to be right and wrong. Students explore the wider society outside of family by learning and experimenting with social order among their peer groups. This allows for opportunities to practice grace and courtesy and develop resilience. Students in this plane of development enjoy working with others so collaborative projects and group work is encouraged in the classroom. This provides students with the opportunity to learn to listen and respect the ideas and thoughts of others in their group
