“The way you designed this resource makes it very versatile. Thanks for creating something the kids can use daily.”
“Having these visuals is such a help in managing behavior. Students respond well to the visuals, and it helps them learn to solve many problems independently.”
“Using this with my lower elementary students. Love the graphics! I show the problem cards and use that for discussion questions “What do you think could be happening here? How do you think this person feels? What could they have done differently?” Choice cards are great to model ideas of peaceful solutions.”
