Problem Solving Form
When individual students make a behavior mistake in my classroom,
I have them complete a problem solving form. This process not
only gently reminds the student of the expected behavior, it
also directs them to find their own workable solution.
When a student is asked by the teacher to "...please
fill out a problem solving form," he or she will walk back
to the "problem solving desk," complete the form including
drawing pictures of the problem and solution at the bottom of
the form, place it in a specific paper tray, and then appropriately
rejoin the class or activity. At the teacher's convenience (usually
the next recess), the teacher uses the completed form to discuss
the problem and solution with the student.
