– A flexible, ready-to-use program to help special students in grades K-5 learn appropriate ways to behave among others

The revised and updated second edition of this bestselling resource book provides ready-to-use lessons, complete with reproducible worksheets, to help children become aware of acceptable social behaviour and develop proficiency in acquiring basic social skills.

The book is organised around three core areas crucial to social development in the primary grades:

  • Accepting Rules and Authority at School
  • Relating to Peers
  • Developing Positive Social Skills

Each lesson places a specific skill within the context of real-life situations, giving teachers a means to guide students to think about why each of the social skills is important. The hands-on activity that accompanies each lesson helps students to work through, think about, discuss and practise the skill in the classroom or outside.
