Product Description
One of my top requested lessons is on staying focused by identifying and ignoring distractions. While most students are taught to ignore, explicitly teaching them self-talk gives them the tools to do so.

This lesson plan includes a set of two types of scripts for 7 different common scenarios in upper elementary school that distract our students. Here are some options for how to use them:

Option A: I acted out but 3 of these using the teacher and some of the higher readers in the class.

Option B: I put students in small groups, gave them scripts and about 10 minutes to "prepare", and then they performed each of them for the whole group.

Option C: Each scenario was a different rotation with 4 copies of the script. Groups rotated through and at each one they chorally read the scenario and then each read the self-talk portion of the script aloud individually.

Types up lesson plan (with ASCA standards and CASEL competencies) includes video clip suggestion, anchor chart, and exit ticket.

This resource is also available as part of my Study Skills Small Group or Classroom Lesson Bundle.
