What do I do when I hit the wall?

When gifted students "hit the wall" and are struggling with a problem here are some options to help in the situation.
These are some ideas from my own gifted students:
"When I hit the wall, I wait for help."
"I look at the problem and concentrate." 
"I do yoga and meditation."
"I try anything I can think of."
and my favorite quote...... " I slouch like a couch potato."

Do you have any other suggestions?  What can help us cope when we are struggling?

I look forward to continuing my PACT instruction at Van Buren and Hoover elementary, but I will also join the Coolidge team this year.  I am excited to work with great students, teachers and parents at all of my buildings.  

New iPads for PACT

I look forward to incorporating iPads into my gifted classrooms this year. I can't wait to see what the students can create with this technology.
