Week 7: Day 2

Children will review and practice "What's the problem? What's the plan?" and learn the strategy "Ask for help." 


Ask, “What do we do when we have a problem?” Use the cards to review each step of “Breathe, Think, Do.”

Show the “Breathe, Think, Do” Chart and explain that you will use it to help Elmo with a problem.

  1. Say, “Three of Elmo’s friends are having fun playing a dress-up game. Elmo wants to play, too, but there aren’t enough costumes. How do you think Elmo is feeling?”
  2. Point to the “Think” part of the chart and say “Let’s think! What’s Elmo’s problem?” Write or draw pictures of their responses on the chart.
  3. Then ask, “What’s the plan? How can Elmo fix the problem?” Write or draw pictures of their responses. You can also suggest “Ask for help.”
