Lessons are written in an easy-to-follow format with talking points to
Thirty-five new lesson plans with activities to help you teach valuable social skills to students! Use this workbook to introduce a range of social skills, from the basic (following instructions and listening to others) to the complex (advocating for yourself and setting long-term goals).
Lessons are written in an easy-to-follow format with talking points to help you define and explain a skill and guide students through an activity. At the end of each lesson is a Think Sheet for students with questions about how to use a skill in different settings and situations. Role-play scenarios and classroom activities also are provided so students can practice each skill's behavioral steps. Some of the activities blend the teaching of social skills into academic lessons in math/science, language arts, social science, and physical education. Social skills include: expressing empathy, going to an assembly, accepting defeat or loss, using anger control strategies, responding to inappropriate talk/touch, completing homework, being prepared for class, and resisting negative peer pressure. Includes lesson plans for these additional skills:
-Making a request
-Accepting awards and honors
-Choosing appropriate friends
-Getting the teacher's attention
-Accepting decisions of authority
-Declining an offer graciously
-Making an appropriate complaint
An ideal companion to Tools for Teaching Social Skills in School, (page 13) this workbook features a CD-ROM with reproducible worksheets and skill posters (to hang in classrooms and commonareas).
