These sheets have been designed to provide ideas and strategies for dealing with difficult life situations that students must sometimes endure.
The worksheets in this set include activities to help students discuss family roles, and how to cope with divorce, separation and conflict. They also explore dealing with anger and other emotions that may arise from these types of situations.
Activities suit most elementary grades.
There are numerous resources and articles about teaching values, dealing with grief, addressing family conflict and the like, however, most of these articles and programs outline strategies for dealing with the problem at the wholeschool level. While this is indeed a very appropriate way to deal with such matters, it has become obvious that there is a lack of ready-to-use materials for the actual classroom teacher. The Life Skills activity sheets aim to fill the gap between the frameworks set out by national bodies and the delivery of practical and meaningful lessons in the classroom.
These activities are also available in a full ebook; 'Life Series Skills: Family Relationships.
