Turn everyday frustrations into teachable moments.Young children encounter problems, mistakes, and accidents that challenge them daily. Helping children conquer everyday frustrations fosters the creativity, critical thinking, and resilience that enables children to thrive in a formidable world. Problem-Solving with Young Children will coach early childhood teachers, child care providers, and parents to develop a range of strategies to help young children become creative problem solvers, including:

• Questions to ask
• Ways to listen
• Strategies for brainstorming and trying solutions
• Suggestions for using the scientific method or design thinking to test ideas
• Methods for reflecting on what worked and what still needs improvement

See what children learn along the way -- the social skills, emotional intelligence, language and communication skills, and STEM skills that evolve as children participate in an authentic, meaningful problem-solving process.

Featuring anecdotes and advice, and incorporating research on how children learn, emergent curriculum methods, problem-based learning, developmentally appropriate practices, and responsive pedagogies, this book will help you lead children through meaningful problem-solving processes and prepare tomorrow’s critical thinkers.
