This year we started with the topic of 'Ourselves'. This included settling into school, learning the routines and expected behaviour, learning about Kelso's Choices, developing their growth mind-set and classroom rules. Kelso's Choices gives children the skills to resolve their smaller conflicts independently. We have taught the children in class how some conflicts (problems) are big such as, someone is hurt or is very upset then they need to seek an adults assistance or if it is a small problem such as, someone tapping a pencil that they can use one of Kelso's choices to solve it without an adult. We have included a video below that explains Kelso's Choices.
