Teaching Social Skills and Character Building with your students is often times more important then the educational piece. These are essential life skills! Many parents and teachers forget to teach this part. A class that lacks character and social skills will have a difficult time during the school year learning anything. I spend the first 6-8 weeks focusing on social skills.
This Connecting Unit has 6 step by step lessons and activities designed for your students to gain a better understanding of what it means “to be connected” to each other. This is the first of a series on Character Education.
This Respect Unit has 10 Step by Step lessons designed for your students to gain a better understanding of what it means “to be respectful”.
The Accepting Others Unit has 10 Step by Step lessons to help students gain the skills in accepting others in their class.
The Listening to Others Unit has 9 Step by Step lessons on helping students learn how to listen better in class and to others.
The Kindness Project FREE version is the mini version of main project. It helps to teach students to be kind to others by giving them compliments. They make a cute book for their classmates.
Included in these units are also an explanation of Family Meetings, aka Morning Meetings. When you are a class for 10 ½ months, you become a family. Families talk to each other and listen to each other. Family Meetings are a time where students and the teacher come together and make decisions, choices and talk about difficult issues together. These “Connecting” lessons are designed to be done within the Family Meeting environment, but can also be taught as a lesson.
All the lessons are planned out Step by Step, should you follow it. I have saved you hours of planning time. This is a NO PREP unit, just PRINT, put in a binder and TEACH. There are discussion questions, activities, interactive activities and worksheets to go with the lessons. It will keep you busy for at least 11 weeks!
Purchasing this bundle will save you 20%!
Stay tuned for the next ones coming soon on Self Respect, Encouraging, Trusting and more.
