We are working on peer problem solving. The students are learning how to use their words with their friends. We are also working on sharing and how to use kind words with our friends. We are also working on our school rules. 
We have 3 rules:

We have also started talking about our choices. We have a stop light that represents our choices:
Green-Safe Choices
Yellow- Warning Need to Make Better Choices
