1.Freeze and Think! What is the problem?
2.Alternatives? What are some of my possible solutions?
3.Solution Evaluation? Choose the best solution?
4.Try It! Slowly and carefully. Does it work?
The steps are from the book below, a great read for even seasoned teachers. Whole group teachings, a brilliant step to educating kids on how to get along best. Yes, I agree some skills are best taught through experiences on the playground with out adults but I also believe there is nothing wrong with offering strategies-everyone learns different ways!

My niece was over the other night and we were feeling creative. She is my go to model for pictures and always has been.
She is the 1st 2 day old baby I ever held......and this year she is taller than me.
We came up with this cute Valentine for her buddies, the flap will go ever the small picture. This sweet gal is a ton of fun!
This cute piece isn't going into a mailbox, it is for a local friend who also has a box of the Sprout's clothes if she wants it too. My little Sprout is growing like a weed- in all 2T clothes. Needless to say I have clothes for him that I didn't even get the chance to snip the tags off of yet.
I have to run back to the studio ( I read 4 chapters today for my behavior class, attended a 3 hour class and met with other students for a self imposed tutorial for 2 hours so I earned it!).
I have a secret project I can't wait to share!
