The 3 B's
This is a poster to help students when they are stuck with their work. I heard about this on a recent training session and thought it would be an ideal strategy for my 2nd grade class who are quick to ask for help than use other resources available. The 3 B's are Brain - can you work out the problem on your own by re-reading/ rethinking the question? Buddy - ask a partner for help, Boss - ask the Teacher (last resort of course!). I'm yet to use it but others have said this has been successful in their own classes and the students have really taken to it.
