Activity to Create Two Positive Choices
Nathan, you have a choice! You may eat your pizza or drink your drink. What is better for you? Way to go, you decided to drink your drink.
Meredith, you have a choice! You may put the eraser cover on the board and listen or you may put the eraser cover on the board and sit quietly on your hands. What is better for you? Good for you! You chose to sit on your hands.
Cameron, you have a choice! You can work on math problems 1-3 or raise your hand for help. What is better for you? You chose to raise your hand for help so you can understand fractions better. Good for you!
Remember: There are NO RIGHT ANSWERS, just a focus on two positive actions that achieve your desired outcome.
