Social Skills Curriculum Activities Library: Social Skills Lessons and Activities for Grades 1-3by Ruth Weltmann Begun
Synopses & Reviews
This resource is one of four books in the "Social Skills Curriculum Activities Library," a practical series designed to help classroom teachers and specialists teach appropriate behavioral skills to students of all abilities, preschool through grade 12. The activities emphasize teaching young people to recognize the equal rights of others, independent of color, race, and religion, and develop their skill in using good judgment to resolve life?s conflicts peacefully.
The complete Social Skills Curriculum Library provides over 250 classroom-tested lessons and activities in four distinct units, each tailored to the developmental needs of students at a particular grade level:
Each lesson covers:
Each unit also includes an introduction to the curriculum and lesson format ... brief guidelines "To the Teacher" for using the activities most effectively ... reproducible Task Review Cards for circle-time class discussions ... and a Family Training Booklet addressed to parents with suggestions for teaching social skills at home (units 1-3).
In short, the "Social Skills Curriculum Activities Library" gives teachers at all level a stimulating and systematic way to develop positive social behaviors in their students. The activities focus on real problem situations, and are readily adapted to any classroom or school-wide program, and can be easily enhanced with other strategies, models and interventions devised by the creative teacher.
In the early primary school years, children need to learn certain social skills to be successful in school and out. Some children have already mastered handling disappointment and working out differences with others, but many children struggle with the social skills that are expected of them. To help students of all skill levels, the author of the highly praised Ready-To-Use Violence Prevention Skills Lessons & Activities for Elementary Students presents this practical book that gives teachers and specialists a stimulating, systematic way to develop positive social behaviors in students through awareness, discussion, and rehearsing new behaviors. It offers over 50 detailed lesson plans and practice worksheets based on real-life situations. These age-appropriate lessons help children build self-esteem, self-control, respect for the rights of others, and a sense of responsibility for one's own actions. Printed in a spiral-bound 8 1/4" x 11" format, the pages can be easily photocopied for use by the whole class or for individuals as the need to work on a particular skill arises.
