Effective conflict resolution is built upon strong communication skills. Encouraging children to describe and discuss their feelings helps them to establish a sense of control over those powerful emotions that, at times, threaten to overwhelm. These types of discussions can serve as a productive outlet for these kind of feelings.
What is conflict resolution?
Sometimes we all get pretty angry.
We may feel that something is unfair, something has been taken or broken that we value, someone is being mean, we're not getting a fair share, etc.
So what do we do?
Well, we could throw a huge tantrum, get really upset, be mean to everybody etc.
Would any of these things solve the problem? I don't think so!
Well, what could you do?
Conflict Resolution Try to sort things out so that everyone gets a fair go and something of what they want.
There are 4 things that you need to do.
2 Avoid making things worse
3 Work together
4 Find the solution

Matt and I saw the information on the blog (Friday or Saturday). Thanks very much for doing that. We enjoyed your voiceover while the video showed the breakfast scene (Matt especially).
Matt’s short movie was shot on Sunday. The whole family had a lot of fun doing it (a LOT OF FUN). I was truly impressed with Matt’s motivation and focus. I originally thought that Calvin would have to help him with MovieMaker, but Matt definitely proved me wrong about that.
While Calvin and I were preparing supper on Sunday, Matt decided that he would edit the movie. He found the program quite easy to use. So, the film is exactly how Matt wanted it. And, his family is extremely proud of the outcome.
Matt burned a CD for you and will bring it to school on Tuesday.
Thanks for all help on this project. I foresee more movies in our future, from our young Steven Speilberg.

Matt nous prépare une surprise, mais il a besoin d'un peu d'aide. Comme il n'a pas écouté en classe, je lui ai fait un petit vidéo sur `comment créer un video`. J'espère quì'il lui servira bien.

C'était très intéressant de remarquer les ressemblances entre nos méthodes de travail -les statues qui se transforment en action- et le déroulement de chaque scène de cette pièce.

Voici Claire qui fait ses devoirs. Elle a crée une fusée! ATTENTION! Les forces ne sont pas en équilibre et elle va décoller (la fusée!)! Comment peut-elle faire voler sa fusée plus loin et plus vite? Comment peut-elle réduire la friction?

We had a great day at the museum. I`m quite proud of the way our class applied their knowledge of structures and forces during our workshops and how they continue to work well together all while speaking French.
