Are you constantly helping students solve problems that they should be able to fix independently? Teaching kids how to be problem solvers is an important social skill and step toward independence. These low-prep posters and worksheets will give you the foundation to teach problem solving skills and reinforce your classroom expectations and routines.
An important role of the kindergarten teacher is to teach students to be less reliant on adults and more independent in the classroom. This can be a challenge when kids are used to adults doing everything for them and fixing any small challenge that arises. Use these posters to teach problem-solving skills in 3 easy steps: Stop, think, and choose a solution.
These posters and worksheets were designed to help teachers to foster student independence and to teach students how to overcome small challenges on their own. Best of all they are ready to use, simply print and get started today!
Every classroom is different and each teacher sets specific classroom expectations. This resource comes with a PowerPoint template so that you can change each “problem scenario” to match the needs and expectations in your classroom. You MUST have PowerPoint to edit.
