Some of our 1st and 2nd graders are working on the SEL skill of compromise. Teachers are incorporating skits, group games, journal prompts, and readings to focus them on two ways to compromise: mix ideas together in an “Idea Pot” and/or balance the scales of fun by taking turns.  They practiced by using these skills to negotiate disagreements, like whether to play tag or build forts, make mud cakes or fairy houses.
