At Rocky Branch our focus is on finding solutions to our problems. We have been learning some techniques
(Ignore it, talk it over respectfully with the person, try to agree on a win-win solution or get help from the teacher) We are working to be problem solvers by using a wheel of choice that we are creating as a class and to share our thoughts with each other during class meetings. We have created bonds by sharing strategies that have worked in the past. :)
