Today’s elementary school children have an increasing need for prosocial skill development.
The workbook helps children move from classroom modeling to real world mastery of the 60 prosocial skills introduced in the instructional curriculum Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child. Thirty new activities help students learn to generalize and refine social-emotional skills such as making friends, dealing with their feelings, alternatives to aggression and coping with stress.
The Student Workbooks and Leader’s Guide give educators, clinicians, and school counselors a step-by-step procedure for introducing and proceeding with the Skillstreaming program. The numerous activities provided in the Student Workbook assist students in not only learning the Skillstreaming process, but key social nuances that will help them be more successful in their skill use.
The Student Workbook jumpstarts student learning, structures the Skillstreaming teaching process for both new and experienced group leaders, and is an excellent tool for promoting parental involvement.
Skill Cards, Student Workbooks and Skill Posters reinforce the key objectives in the Skillstreaming program.
NOTE: It is essential for successful implementation of this curriculum to first have the program book (Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child: A Guide for Teaching Prosocial Skills) before attempting to utilize other Skillstreaming products.
Available in convenient sets of 10 Student Workbooks (includes Group Leader’s Guide).
Introduction for Parents
When children share this brief overview and their workbook progress with parents, parents become more willing and able to support skill practice and skill use outside the learning setting.
Opportunities for real-world practice help children learn important “people skills” that include listening, making friends, dealing with feelings, self-control, and dealing with anger. Engaging activities and role-playing capture children’s attention and build skill mastery.
More Practice and Good Ideas
Successful skill use depends on more than just learning skill steps. This part of the workbook focuses on such critical factors as choosing the right time and place, understanding body language, and identifying feelings.
Group Leader’s Guide
Essential for use with the Student Workbook, the Group Leader’s Guide tells leaders exactly what to do, page by page, when using the Student Workbook to teach the Skillstreaming process. In addition, it includes numerous teaching tips and suggestions for related activities to enhance children’s learning, as well as reproducible skill posters, skill cards, and role-play tags.
