Okay...Let's face it we all experience this at home and at school.
If you are a teacher you might notice that a student has a meltdown over something that may not really be a BIG DEAL!!!
So How do you handle this...I mean think about it...some situations may not be a big deal to us, but to a child it may seem like a humongous DEAL..so how to you teach the difference...well...try this resource, it may be your answer!!
The above question has been asked and used in classrooms around the nation: Is it a Humongous, Big, Little or Teeny Tiny Deal? This is a custom resource that I was asked to create for a former student teacher of mine because she wanted to dig deeper into this topic because as a special education teacher, situations like this come up on a daily basis. In conferring with my daughter, who is a also a Sp.Ed.. Kindergarten teacher, she, too, suggested to create a resource that addresses this situation.
So...here is what is included in this resource:
♥ 4 Posters with specific ideas that you can display, make Bigger or use as is.
♥ 4 Posters that can be edited with your own ideas under each heading.
♥ 4 blank posters to add your own descriptors.
♥ 44 scenarios or situation cards for students to decide if this happens...how would I feel? What can I do to solve this situation and rate it from Humongous deal down to Teeny Tiny Deal.
♥ 4 Blank scenario cards for you to add your own ideas specific to your classroom that may arise for a class meeting etc.
♥ A Written Response sheet for students to think about how they reacted to the situation etc.. These can be used to send home if needed.
♥ A rating strip with visuals to assist students in thinking and evaluating the situation and decide if it it a Humongous Deal on down etc.
♥ An editable rating strip.
♥ Sheets for Think/ Pair/Share for Lesson Ideas.
Here are some suggested uses for this resource:
♥ Introduce the topic and have students Think/Pair/ Share their ideas for each level. As a whole group discuss the meaning for each level and either use the pre-written posters or the editable ones and write and discuss each.
♥ Use only with small groups that need this type of instruction.
♥ Use it as a way to learn calm down strategies in discussing ideas of what to do.
♥ Use to solve classroom problems during a class meeting or with individuals.
♥ Use for a story that describes a character who reacts to a problem in an inappropriate way and use these sheets to discuss what the students might do if they are in this situation.
♥ Come up with YOUR own ideas!!
