Three Before Me - Poster

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: 1 - 5

Encourage your students to try 3 things before asking for help with this classroom poster.

Three Before Me!

Three before me is a classroom strategy that has students try to solve the problem in three different ways before asking the teacher. Students’ ability to solve problems both independently and collaboratively is imperative when running an efficient classroom. When they get ‘stuck’ or aren’t sure where to go or what to do next, the teacher is generally the first place to go. However, they often can solve the issue on their own or with the help of a classmate.
