An engaging component designed to supplement the curriculum detailed in Skillstreaming the Elementary School Child. This comprehensive resource provides the materials needed to sustain skill instruction, enhance students’ skill mastery, and most important – to refine skill use for dealing with more complex, real-life situations in and outside of the classroom.

The 312-page manual features 600 easy-to-use lesson plans and related activities. Downloadable reproducibles (in some books also a data CD) contain over 200 printable forms necessary for implementing the lesson plans. Students learn important strategies such as goal setting, problem solving, impulse control, cooperating, anticipating consequences, and thinking aloud. Activities are provided for at least one week of supplementary instruction for each of the 60 skills in the elementary curriculum.

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.

The manual includes numerous reproducible forms and worksheets available as a download. Please note ISBN: 9780878225224 shown on the Copyright page is incorrect. Please refer to the ISBN as shown on the back cover of the book.
