Conflict Resolution


104 Activities That Build: Self-esteem, Teamwork, Communication, Anger Management, Self-discovery, and Coping Skills
by Alanna Jones
"Alanna Jones is a certified recreational therapist who has compiled an interesting set of 104 games and activities that social workers, recreational therapists, and some educators and school counselors (in substantially separate classrooms for behavior/emotional disorders) can use. The book is organized into activities that build (1) teamwork, (2) self-esteem, (3) communication, (4) self-discovery, (5) anger management, and (6) coping skills. Almost all activities are designed for elementary school aged children, but Ms. Jones, under each activity, presents variations--either in the activity itself or in the intended age group."

Our Peaceful Classroom
by Aline D. Wolf 
"I am a Montessori teacher and loved the illustrations in the book. The children in my classroom recognized the material shown in some of the pictures. I loved that they were done by children around the world. I read this book the first week of school. I wanted to set the tone for the year. It is a book the children and I can go back to time and time again to remind us about being peaceful to one another." ( review.)
