The Kickball Conflict  
by Caitlin Brandenburg and Elizabeth McCreight
 
Tanner and Cheyenne are playing with their neighbors.  

They decide to use their legs to play kickball and Tanner pitches the first three innings.   
 
Cheyenne wants to pitch so she says, "Hey Tanner, is your arm tired?  Let me pitch."  

Tanner does not like that idea so he shakes his head and says, "No, I am not done".  

Cheyenne gets very angry and stomps her foot.  She points her finger and tells Tanner he is not being fair.  

Tanner says, "I was here first and I am the best pitcher".  
What should Tanner and Cheyenne do?  

Tanner places his foot on the ball and stops playing to decide the right thing to do.  

Cheyenne says, "From now on, we can take turns".  Tanner wants to play fairly too, so they agree and shake hands. 

For the rest of the kickball game Tanner and Cheyenne take turns pitching and everyone plays fairly.   

Tanner and Cheyenne hang a sign up sheet to give everyone a turn pitching and to reduce conflict.
