I used this group with a group of second grade boys. They really enjoyed having stories read to them and spending time talking about what was happening in their world. I think it is always valuable to learn what students' perceptions of a situation is. For the most part, the students didn't understand why they were getting in trouble with their teachers. Some students need social skills taught in an explicit way. Social stories are a great way to introduce skills to students.
What is the Social Skills for School group?
This is a simple group about emotions and coping skills. I used it with the primary grades. It was a great way to help students who need a little extra support with emotional regulation. I focused each week on one emotion and a coping skill to go with it. I define the term Coping Skill as any tip, trick, or tool that you use to safely help you calm down that doesn't hurt you, others, or property.
