"I Need You to Problem Solve"

Student, as he clumsily attempts to put up his chair and it gets tangled in the next chair: "Miss M, I need help!"

Me: "______, I need you to problem solve."

Student is clumsy for another 15 seconds before successfully untangling chair legs and putting up his chair. 

Me: "Now straighten out that desk."

No coddling here. We need to get these sixth graders ready for seventh grade and beyond!

Just another teaching moment after the last bell on a Friday.  Sometimes the only thing I can manage to say is: I so teach sixth grade!
