Do your students have huge reactions to small problems? Help your students show expected behavior by using this social learning resource!

I use this resource with my own PK-2 grade students when introducing, learning and reviewing the expected reaction to small problems. By comparing “Just a Glitch” problems (e.g. broken pencil) with a “Big Problem” (e.g. broken leg) you can help students gain an appropriate perspective on their own reactions.

Materials Included:
Size of the Problem Category Visuals (3 pages)
Problem Visuals (2 pages)
Size of the Problem Poster (11”x17’’)
