Franklin School had a visit from Les Trouble, PI today! Students learned about conflict resolution and how to solve problems in four steps. Mr. Trouble, a problem investigator, and Spike, his sidekick, reinforced the "I message" Ms. Wu teaches and encourages us all to use when feeling upset, jealous angry, or sad. Practice it here: I feel _____ when you _____ and I want _____.
