Too Good for Violence Kindergarten Teacher's Manual

Kindergarten children and their pal Tuggles the Teddy Bear join Whitney and Ben as they go in search of a Peace-Able Place. Along their journey, they learn how to become peacemakers by sharing, listening, and taking turns, and learning how to manage angry feelings through “the stop and think” exercise. Children learn important peacemaking skills through storytelling, movement, pictures, and games.
