Three Wise People

Encourage students to look for answers on their own before coming to ask you, whether it's for directions, clarification, or problem solving. Make a poster with similar steps to the following. Laminate it and post it in your classroom.

  1. Look at the problem again. Have you tried to start the problem before asking someone for help? Have you read the instructions?
  2. Ask three other students or helpers in the classroom for help.
  3. If you STILL cannot get help, come see me.
