Be a CSI: Classroom Solutions Initiator… Helping Young Children Problem Solve

When children have a problem, they do one of three things: withdraw, become aggressive, or they solve that problem through an acceptable solution. The goal of this make-and-take workshop is to supply participants with child friendly tools, like puppets and books to take back to the classroom. Visual supports will also be given to guide young children on how to learn to navigate through the steps of problem solving all the way to a solution.
