Kindergartners as Friendship Teachers

Kindergartners shared their completed "Friendship Tool Boxes" with their third-grade Book Buddies last week.  The younger children taught the older ones how

  • to make an "I Statement" to share feelings
  • to put on "optimism glasses" to remind oneself to be positive
  • to use a "break it, fix it" tool to come up with solutions to a conflict
  • to use the "win-win solution card" to remember to be flexible in finding a solution
  • to use the "move on" tool after a conflict is solved
