Use this workbook to introduce a range of social skills, from the basic (Following Instructions and Listening to Others) to the complex (Advocating for Oneself and Setting Long-Term Goals). Thirty-five new lesson plans with activities to help you teach valuable social skills to students!
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, accepting winning appropriately, and resisting negative peer pressure.
An ideal companion to Tools for Teaching Social Skills to Students, this workbook features a CD-ROM with reproducible worksheets and skill posters (to hang in classrooms and common areas)!
