Students learn how to be peaceful problem-solvers and resolve conflicts using an I-Message in this interactive and engaging lesson! Cut down on tattling and grow your students’ social skills by introducing your students to The Buddy Bear. Students grab him whenever they need to resolve a conflict, and whoever is holding him can speak. Students talk out their problem by taking turns, sharing their feelings, and expressing their needs with an I-Message. Digital for Google Slides™, PowerPoint, and printable materials are all included!
