Throughout the year, social skills will be addressed using
direct instruction, role play and practice.
For each new skill introduced, we will be working towards a special goal. The class may earn a mystery reward, game time, extra recess, or popcorn and a movie.
Here are some sample skills:
Asking for Help
Dealing With Losing
We began the year focusing on "Listening." We will continue watching videos, reading books, acting out scenarios and examining what our current skill looks like. Currently, we are focusing on what it means to "use self-control." In addition to yoga breathing techniques to help calm, focus and energize, we will role play situations and brainstorm different healthy choices that can be made when feeling upset or overly excited. Please encourage your child to tell you about the strategies they learn and utilize them at home!
