Use the short stories and thinking activities in this book to help children develop functional problem-solving skills and effective strategies for communicating when problems are encountered in various situations. The activities help students to verbalize solutions for problems, identify causes, identify consequences of behaviour, and recognize the viewpoints of others. The book also includes high-interest role playing activities that allow students to interact as they solve various types of problems. Reproducible worksheets are included.

The problem-solving skills in this book have direct relevance to success in meeting academic standards. Students are challenged to make comparisons, propose solutions, evaluate the actions of others, identify cause-effect relations, etc. as they talk about problems relevant to their everyday life experiences.
