A Stitch in Time Saves Nine

Discuss with students the idea that dealing with something as it happens, takes far less time than fixing it after. 

  1. Stories about fixing things before they got worse – sewing, glueing, hammering, stapling, taping, etc.
  2. Stories about making an apology when you’ve done something wrong – before a fight or a grudge starts.
  3. A messy kid story – (eating an ice-cream cone, cotton candy, leaving clothes outside, putting your notebooks and texts in the backpack, etc.)
