SOL #19 Real Life Problem Solving

Another proud moment in my Third Grade class.

I try to foster a community of problem solving for my students. Often when they come up to me with an issue, I ask, “What did you do about it?” or “What did you say to ___?”

This encourages students to first attempt to problem solve on their own and then seek adult as a backup.

On Friday, I saw these problem skills in action! One student came up to me and asked if her and three of her friends could take time to talk because they needed to “talk it out” and “figure it out” together.

Of course, I said yes! So as I was conferencing with another student for extra help on homework, I watched this meeting in the back of my room unfold.

How amazing!

They never once came to me with their problem..and by the end of the day, they were all smiling and getting along!

I guess you could say that Friday was full of proud moments like this one. 🙂
