Solving friendship problems
Next Tuesday, March 4, Fifth Grade students will put on the third Community Celebration for the rest of Love Hall. Based on the concepts presented in the Second Step curriculum, the assembly will feature skits by Mrs. Allen’s students about how to make friends and skits by Mrs. Villasana’s students about how to solve friendship problems. A music video from the Fifth Grade Second Step lessons will be shown; the video explains how to use “STEP” to solve a problem:
S: Say the problem
T: Think of solutions
E: Explore the consequences (What would happen if…?)
P: Pick a solution and make a plan
To prepare for the Community Celebration, Pre-First students have discussed how to solve problems with friends (and siblings, cousins, peers, etc.). From walking away to apologizing to talking through the situation, our little Wildcats are pretty wise! See some of their work below.
