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.
