This week in Pod 2 our circle time focus is on finding solutions to problems.
When you have an important decision to make or a problem to solve, this three step process can help:
In order to solve problems,or make plans or a decision, you must stop long enough to think about what you are about to do.
Once you stop, you have the time to think so that you can make the best choice. What should you think about? The ABC’s of responsible behavior. That is:
A. What are my ALTERNATIVES or choices? B. What is the BEHAVIOR that I will choose? C. What might be the CONSEQUENCES of the action I am about to take?
Once you decide on your best choice, you can act upon it. Remember you are responsible for what you do.
We also found a great activity looking at feelings: http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/education/health/feelings/flash/index.shtml?swf=base
