I’m Stuck Board

This item is designed to help students become
more independent problem solvers. Students are encouraged to try some self-help strategies before approaching the teacher.

There are 7 prompts for "I'll try" and 7 prompts for "I'll ask" to help students make good choices when they are "Stuck"

This helps students prepare for older grades and larger class sizes and improves initiative and self-regulation. Of course, it is also a huge sanity saver for teachers!

I like to discuss some of the ideas with the students and have them brainstorm what strategies we can use to help ourselves if we get ‘stuck’ on our work. I encourage my kids to do the “Ill try” options first, if they still need help, then they use the “I’ll ask” options to ask a specific and useful question. “I don’t get it” is not allowed.
