I is for...I can't keep up!!
I am definitely trying to teach my students that there is nothing wrong with being different or not going along with the crowd. There is one particular student who has a difficult time transitioning and rather than call all the attention to him, I let him come over when he's ready (unless it's taking him longer than usual!). They are used to this. We have a student at our school who has cerebral palsy and in the beginning of the year, she came to talk to our class about why she has a walker and why she walks the way she walks. Whether or not this lesson taught will be with them for the rest of their lives, is solely dependent on the individual.
