Some students from 3A acted out their solution to a different peer to peer conflict.
Can you think of a problem that might happen at home that your children could solve using I feel and you feel statements? If so, please share in the comments section!
Mrs. Stohr, a third grade teacher at Armstrong, shared a post with me from her class's book blog. It's an example of using children's literature to think about bullying:
We are still a few weeks away from starting our unit on bullying, but I thought I would share this story by Anabelle, a third grade student at Armstrong. I thought it was a sweet way of thinking about the challenges of supporting everyone in a community.
Dear Armstrong Parents and Guardians,
I would like to introduce you to my new blog, "Small Moments." My hope is to use this site to highlight some of the interactions I have with students at Armstrong. From sharing ideas generated by students during classroom lessons to examples of my work with students during lunch and recess, I would like to give you a window into the time your child spends here at Armstrong and the social-emotional growth they experience throughout their day.
