This is one of four books in the "Social Skills Curriculum Activities Library," a ready-to-use curriculum based on "real-life" situations to help teachers build children's self-esteem, self-control, respect for the rights of others, and a sense of responsibility for one's own actions. A practical series designed to help classroom teachers and specialists teach appropriate behavior skills to students of all abilities. Each volume has 50 or more lesson plans with reproducible activity sheets.

The complete Social Skills Curriculum Library provides more than 250 classroom-tested lessons and activities in four distinct units, each tailored to the developmental needs of students at a particular grade level. Activities in each grade-level unit follow a uniform format, including a descriptive title, a specific behavioral objective, and a lesson plan that provides everything needed for an effective, well-balanced learning experience.

Special Features
Each unit includes an introduction to the curriculum and lesson format; brief guidelines "To the Teacher" for using the activities most effectively; reproducible Social Skills Task Review Cards for circle-time class discussions (units 1-2); and a Family Training Booklet addressed to parents with suggestions for teaching social skills at home (units 1-3). All of the practice worksheets are individually printed in a spiral-bound format for easy photocopying. Patterns and worksheets may be photocopied as many times as needed for use with individual children, small groups, or the whole class.
