Teaching Social Skills with One Page a Day Lessons

Teaching social skills to students can be tough.

  • Where do you start?
  • What skills do you target?
  • When on earth can I fit social skills instruction within my ALREADY busy day packed full of Math, ELA, Science and Social Studies, Specials, Recess……..? 

You get the picture. There’s just SO much to do in your school day with just SO little time.

Why Teaching Social Skills Needs to Hit the Front Burner

Often, the teaching of social skills is put on the back burner. With the pressure of focusing on academics and meeting your state requirements for the amount of daily minutes spent on math and reading instruction, it’s tough to find time.

However, the teaching of social skills is JUST as important (if not MORE important) as academics. It’s GREAT if a student is fluent in their multiplication facts, but what if they cannot effectively engage in conflict management skills? What if they are constantly are getting into trouble with other peers? It’s GREAT if a student is reading on grade level, but what if they cannot make or maintain friendships because they are always doing or saying ‘the wrong thing?’

The Answer to teaching social skills in less time

To make your life easier with teaching social skills, I have created a series of ‘one page a day’ social skill lessons. Each page targets a single, but IMPORTANT social skill that can be completed in 10 minutes or less. They can easily be incorporated into morning work, early finisher activities, small groups, or independent work activities. These pages are low prep. You just print or project on your board, and voila! You’re good to go.
