My New Favorite Thing

As the new school year is in full swing, and referrals are beginning to make their way in, I wanted to come up with a cool way to help kids (immediately) with all of those useful strategies that we teach day-in and day-out.  Since I can't see every student right away, for those who just need some reminders of strategies I created these "Be A Gecko Problem-Solver" cards.  I heart these cards!  On the back of the card are 11 strategies kids can try to solve their problem.  There is also a reminder at the bottom to seek an adult if their is a safety concern, otherwise the good-ole standby of "try three before me" can be used.  They just arrived.  I think I will give one to each teacher to put in the classroom.  What do you guys think?
