Did you end up with “that” class this year? The one that fights like cats and dogs? The one that can’t get along to save their lives? Then Rock Buddies are for you! In this management system, students create their very own pet rock. They then trade that rock each week with different students in class and this becomes their “Rock Buddy.” They do nice and kind things for their rock buddy all week (with your guidance and the help of this packet).
