Learning to give quality apologies is tough work for students! These cards will scaffold the development of this skill for children to promote a positive classroom community and healthy conflict resolution strategies. You can use them as one longer lesson or break them up into two or three shorter lessons. They are active, engaging, and effective! These are also an excellent part of a classroom using restorative practices because they provide students practice with restoring and repairing relationships before an actual problem arises.

Part 1: Teach the students the components of a quality apology and appropriate response using sentence stems on a mini-poster/anchor chart.

Part 2: Students practice reading 24 pre-written apologies task cards to one another using true to life situations 2nd-6th graders may encounter.

Part 3: Students practice coming up with their own apologies given 24 ‘apology needed’ conflict situations task cards.

***There’s no overlap between the sets of cards in regards to situations, so both activities remain fresh and fun!
