This fun activity is meant to be used during Morning Meeting to help students discuss appropriate solutions to problems that they may face in the classroom.
Students read the card, discuss what the problem is, who made the mistake, why they acted the way they did, and what they could have done differently.
An example of one of the cards is:
Jen and Shea are making a picture with the puzzle blocks. Jen decided to add blue blocks to the top to look like the sky. Shea messed up the whole picture and walked away crying.
What Shea didn’t tell Jen was that she didn’t like the blue sky. What would you have done instead to solve this problem?
All of the cards include scenarios that I have encountered in my classroom over the past few years. Discussing appropriate actions has helped prevent behavior problems!
File includes 18 problem solving cards and a page that outlines the steps to use the cards.
