Peaceful Problem Solving 

There are lots of creative ways to handle conflict in the classroom.

Teaching children to problem solve is an important part of early education. Watch as Callie Weller, a preschool teacher in Vermont, teaches her preschoolers different ways to solve problems peacefully.  

If you’re with colleagues, discuss your thoughts together. Consider:  

  • What is one idea Callie presented that you’d like to keep in mind as you go through the day in your classroom?  
  • How do you build a peaceful environment for children in your space? What did you see in the video that you’d like to try?  
  • How does Callie observe, interpret, and comment on children’s behavior as they play and learn?
