The theme for the beginning of 2018 was conflict resolution. In 1st grade through 4th grade, we discussed the importance of needing to solve small problems peacefully on their own. In order to convey the importance of not going directly to a teacher when they run into a conflict, we talked about how to figure out what size the problem is first (Small, Medium or Big). Then we watched some video examples of small problems and how to use the Solution Wheel 2.0 to solve it. Then we even acted out some more problems that come up and practiced using the Solution Wheel 2.0 even more!
Below is the Solution Wheel 2.0 that went home with all 1st - 4th graders. Even more detailed information on these lessons (links to videos and other websites) can be found on the Conflict Resolution page
