i can't find the graphic organizer. i think that it was from TIME for KIDS graphic organizer book. But I can't find it.

but i have been trying out the problem solving lessons using a web pocket chart...

when i get a chance i walk around and ask kids to give me different problems. (thanks for the suggestions). I write them on index cards. we randomly pick one - put in in the center of the web then come up with ideas of how you could handle the problem. appropriate and inappropriate.

then we flip over the ideas that will get us into trouble or have negative consequences.

then i ask each child what they would do from the appropriate responses.

it is working out OK so far - a few more things to think through.

(ex - if you lie and possibly get away with something vs. telling the truth and definately getting consequenced.)

thanks for everyones help.
