Stop and think!
This little reminder helps kiddos slow down and review the process of STAR (stop, think, act, review). This has always been a favorite go-to of mine to help my clients problem-solve and practice thinking through their decisions!
Each flap of the STAR has a short description of each letter, which can be the word itself, an example, or even a drawing for the little ones. You can use this in the process of making a choice, or I use it at times to help my clients review decisions, how they affected other people, or if needed- what could have been done differently.
The explanation point we added as an additional problem solver: an example of how to make things right! Apologize, do something nice for the person, take responsibility, or other ideas to help if the choice made was not such a great one!
