Product Description
Of all of the conflict resolution strategies (or Kelso’s Choices!), “Talk it Out” or “I-Messages” are my absolute favorite. It is such an incredible tool in promoting a positive classroom climate and in developing healthy social skills.

The first step in scaffolding the development of this skill is for students to practice giving I-messages to one another using these 27 pre-written “Talk it Out”/”I-Message” task cards. I like to use these in a modified Quiz, Quiz, Trade (or more of a Read, Read, Trade!)activity but they could also work in centers, with scoot, or any other way you choose.

This is also available as part of my Talk It Out/I-Message Task Card Bundle.
