Product Description

Social Skills For a Year includes 36 social skills lessons! Each week, a new social skill is introduced and explicitly taught throughout the week. Each lesson provides a kid-friendly definition of the skill, an objective, and an essential question. Each social skill is introduced with a short passage that connects learning to real life situations students can relate to, with two “Stop and Discuss” checkpoints to create opportunities for conversation and guide students with critical thinking and reflection. Students practice the skill throughout the week by setting a goal and track their progress.

1) On day 1, (Monday) teachers write the weekly social skill focus on the board or use the weekly focus poster provided in this set. This will be the social skill focus that students will practice and teachers will emphasize for the entire week. 2) The teacher provides a copy of the weekly social skill lesson to each student. 3) The teacher and students will read the definition of the skill, the objective, and essential question and discuss. I usually complete an anchor chart at this time with my students. 4) Read the first part of the short passage. 5) Stop and discuss. 6) Read the second part of the passage. 7) Stop and discuss. You could also choose to have students respond to the discussion questions in a social skills journal. 8) Practice. After completing the lesson and discussions, students decide how they will practice the skill during the week by completing the “Practice” section. 9) Each time they practice the skill, they can record it in the “My Progress” section. They can color the boxes in, make checkmarks, place a sticker, etc. The “My Progress” section can even be carried out beyond the focus week by having students store their collection of social skill lessons in a binder or 3-prong folder. A color and black and white binder/folder cover page is also provided in the set if you choose that option. This also allows students and teachers to easily revisit a social skill with the class or even an individual or group of students.

Although a Lesson Sequence has been included, social skills can be taught in any order. Teachers may find the need to teach a particular social skill at a time when a particular behavior is on the rise in the classroom. Teachers may also decide that they only need to use the social skill lessons with certain students.
