Use this resource to make targeting communication, self-awareness, and social knowledge in mixed groups so much easier! This resource includes ideas and visuals for direct instruction, discussion, and self-reflection on a variety of important skills.

I use these focus sheets to introduce motivated students to one skill at a time, discuss the skill, and then reflect on their understanding and use of the skill.

Included is one half-sheet “focus sheet” for the following skills:

  1. Having self-confidence
  2. Planning ahead
  3. Being flexible
  4. Knowing how you feel
  5. Processing a feeling
  6. Asking for what you need
  7. Slowing down
  8. Using positive self-talk
  9. Sharing the conversation
  10. Staying on topic
  11. Starting conversations
  12. Asking great questions
  13. Making great comments
  14. Using your body to focus
  15. Tone of voice
  16. Compromising
  17. Having "just right" energy
  18. Personal space
  19. Taking turns
  20. Body language
  21. Being kind
  22. Solving problems
  23. Giving compliments
  24. Sharing how we feel
  25. Reading the room
  26. Understanding perspective
  27. Using the right volume
  28. Using your brain's filter

In total, there are 28 focus sheets included!

In addition, I've included these files to make the implementation of this resource even easier. All of them encourage your students to reflect on how well they understand and use the targeted skill.

  • 1-page reflection questions poster
  • Half-sheet, self-reflection sheets
  • Self-assessment form with editable text boxes (for use on the computer if desired!)
  • Editable Google Slide™️ version of the self-assessment form
  • Two Google Forms™️ with the self-assessment and reflection questions!

For more info on how I use these visuals, plus some of the research behind social skills groups, and suggested goals, check out my blog post!

During a session, each student can have their own focus sheet or the entire group can focus on the same skill together. These are particularly useful for mixed groups when you’re working on a language or articulation activity, but also want your students working on self-regulation, self and social awareness skills, and/or executive functioning to be able to benefit and grow from the activity. Simply provide the focus sheet, teach, & reinforce! These skills can be practiced during ANY activity - including games!

Most of the focus sheets include a useful visual to help your students understand each skill, however this resource is most useful for readers. Age-appropriate graphics are used - no "baby" clip art!
