Kelso's Choices in Grade 2
In grade 2 this week, we started practicing Kelso's Choices during Guidance Class. Returning students are already familiar from Kelso's Choices from last year, but may need a refresher. Our new students are still learning about Kelso's Choices and what these choices look like in action. This week, students gave examples of different types of 'small problems'.
Small problems are problems that students can solve on their own without an adult's help! They can use Kelso's Choices to make safe choices when small problems arise. Students should try to use at least 2 Kelso's Choices when trying to solve a small problem before asking an adult for help.
Each student came up with a small problem and then chose a Kelso's choice that could help solve it. The students were hard at work this week! Next week, we will learn about BIG Problems.
BIG problems are problems that students may not be able to solve on their own and need an adult's help. They can tell any adult at school or at home if there is a big problem.
Remember the Kelso's Choices are:
Go to Another Game
Share and Take Turns
Wait and Cool off
Talk it Out
Make a deal
Tell them to stop
