Come meet Tommy (puppet)!  Tommy’s brother kicks over his tower and Tommy gets so angry and wants to hit him. Instead, Tommy gets out his STOPLIGHT to follow what he should do: STOP, THINK, ACT. 

Objective: To help students understand the importance of stopping and thinking before you act

How will learning take place?  Through an engaging puppet video lesson to help students learn how to stop, think and act followed by a related game and discussion questions.

Why teach this? There will always be conflict so students need to learn how to react appropriately such as first stopping, second thinking about how they will solve the problem and then third, do (act) what they thought about.

Additional Components (not included in the digital version on Boom Learning): There will be discussion questions, a transition activity to close the lesson as well as an extended learning idea on how to embed this casually into your classroom throughout the week or even better the year!
