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.
- 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?”
- 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.
- 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.”
