Social Problem Solving- Solution Kit!

Check out our new Solution Kit!
We made this to help the children learn positive problem solving skills. You can read more about how we use these in our classroom here and find all the links to the TACSEI website where you can download the visuals for free.

You can fins all kids of printable resources from CSEFEEL: Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning! Including the Solution Kits !

In my kit I have printed the Solution Cards, laminated them, and hung them on a key ring. I also have put them on Popsicle sticks so that they can be taken out of the kit and brought to the situation. I teach each solution to the students so they understand how each one works. By far the most well used solution is "Get a Timer." There are several sand timers and kitchen timers in the kit for the students to use.  ***We teach the children that these are TOOLS! not Toys! They do not "Play" with the timers. They also know they must return all the item to the kit when they are finished.
