We are so excited to have begun our first unit on Conflict Resolution! Most of the students did not know what the word conflict meant and so we worked together to define it and give examples. Afterwards, the students discussed the meaning of resolution and came up with some wonderful ways that they could solve problems at school. Over the next couple of weeks, we will practice lots of strategies for solving conflicts using our good speaking and listening skills!

Over the past two weeks the students have been working on procedures and routines for visiting the speaking and listening classroom. In particular, we have focused heavily on greeting the teacher at the door, entering and leaving the classroom quietly, and coming to the rug ready to learn. The students are doing a fantastic job and I look forward to beginning our unit on conflict resolution next week!

Hello Biltmore Families! The students and I have continued to work on conflict resolution over the past 2 weeks. We have talked about how and why friends might disagree and ways to solve the problem. We have also talked about sharing our feelings in a respectful way, how to apologize, and ways to solve conflicts. In particular, we have practiced making good eye contact, standing tall, and using our strong speaker voice. I believe that this is such an important life skill, and I'm so thrilled to work with your child on this. At home, it would be incredibly helpful if you could chat with them about this. If there are siblings or playmates, ask your child how to solve disagreements!
