B 97037B 97037 100 Things Guys Need to Know
Grade Lvl: T Author: Zimmerman, Bill
Length: 121 Copyright: 2005

Boys need and want advice on all kinds of issues, for all kinds of problems, questions, and concerns. Often, they don’t know who or how to ask, and it seems to them that most self-help books are written for girls. Everything about this book is for and about guys. Graphic-novel-style illustrations engage even reluctant readers. Quotes from real boys, results from a nationwide survey, inspiring stories, facts, and anecdotes keep them interested. Journaling prompts invite boys to think about each topic and what it means to them—from family life to fitting in, showing emotions, bullies, school, peer pressure, failure, handling anger, and more. Positive, practical, and affirming, 100 Things is just what boys need in a world of mixed messages on what it means to be male.

B 97161B 97161 All Learning Is Social and Emotional: Helping Students Develop Essential Skills for the Classroom and Beyond
Grade Lvl: T Author: Frey, Nancy / Fisher, Douglas
Length: 194 Copyright: 2019

While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalized programs separate from academics, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. What teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritize all influence how students think, see themselves, and interact with content and with others. If you teach kids rather than standards, and if you want all kids to get what they need to thrive, Nancy Frey, Douglas Fisher, and Dominique Smith offer a solution: a comprehensive, five-part model of SEL that's easy to integrate into everyday content instruction, no matter what subject or grade level you teach. You'll learn the hows and whys of * Building students' sense of identity and confidence in their ability to learn, overcome challenge, and influence the world around them. * Helping students identify, describe, and regulate their emotional responses. * Promoting the cognitive regulation skills critical to decision making and problem solving. * Fostering students' social skills, including teamwork and sharing, and their ability to establish and repair relationships. * Equipping students to becoming informed and involved citizens. Along with a toolbox of strategies for addressing 33 essential competencies, you'll find real-life examples highlighting the many opportunities for social and emotional learning within the K-12 academic curriculum. Children's social and emotional development is too important to be an add-on or an afterthought, too important to be left to chance. Use this book's integrated SEL approach to help your students build essential skills that will serve them in the classroom and throughout their lives.

Common children's games have been adapted to accommodate children with autism spectrum disorders and range from simple interaction, such as 'putting-in' and 'give and take', to more complex games like 'hide and seek', 'sound-lotto' and 'spin the bottle', as well as games that teach social behaviour, such as exchanging toys and engaging with other children for play opportunities.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Gray, Carol
Length: 39 Copyright: 1994

Carol Gray combines stick-figures with "conversation symbols" to illustrate what people say and think during conversations. Showing what people are thinking reinforces that others have independent thoughts―a concept that spectrum children don't intuitively understand. Children can also recognize that, although people say one thing, they may think something quite different―another concept foreign to "concrete-thinking" children. Children can draw their own "comic strips" to show what they are thinking and feeling about events or people. Different colors can represent different states of mind. These deceptively simple comic strips can reveal as well as convey quite a lot of substantive information. The author delves into topics such as: What is a Comic Strip Conversation?

High/Scope preschool curriculum is a model for developing high-quality early childhood programs that encourage and support children's initiatives and active learning experiences. This revised manual for early childhood practitioners and students presents essential strategies adults can use to make active learning a reality in their programs. The guide's introduction describes the origin of the High/Scope preschool approach, its basic principles, and its effectiveness for children, families, and society. Part 1 of the guide analyzes the core idea in the development of the High/Scope curriculum-active learning. The concept of active learning is discussed in several contexts: as an essential ingredient for learning, as a basis for how adults can create a supportive social climate, and as a foundation for working with the families or working as a team to make the active learning process effective in a particular setting with a particular group of children. Part 2 discusses methods for creating an environment that promotes active learning. This section suggests selecting and arranging materials from which children can choose, and manipulating and developing the daily routine so children have many opportunities to initiate, plan, carry out, and discuss their actions and ideas. Part 3 introduces 58 key experiences that can guide adults as they plan activities to support development in creative representation, language and literacy, initiative and social relations, movement, music, classification, seriation, number, space, and time. This revised edition of the guide includes information on phonemic awareness and preschool reading, additional references, the latest Perry Preschool research results, recent research relating to brain development, and a complete description of a consistent approach to problem solving.

B 95906B 95906 File Factor: Filing Away Disappointment
Grade Lvl: T Author: Dana, Terese / Meisel, Bradford
Length: 56 Copyright: 2005

Gives children an innovative way to work through and release their disappointment through guided categorization. This visual support strategy prompts children to organize information into conceptual groupings to help them understand the reason behind the emotions they are feeling. It provides a structure to analyze the root of their disappointment, file it away, review the situation with an adult, and focus on the positive by identifying situations that worked out as they had hoped. Many children with emotional and behavioral difficulties need strategies to help them learn how to regulate their responses when faced with disappointment. Helping children regulate their emotions is an important goal. Children who can't bounce back from disappointment tend to externalize blame and can become vulnerable to rage and depression. Parents, teachers and therapists can incorporate this tool to help children in elementary and middle school deal with everyday disappointments. The File Factor has been used to help improve the coping skills of children diagnosed with high functioning autism, aspergers, PDD, NLD and ADD as well as children who are easily frustrated, depressed, anxious, shut down, externalize blame or have developed a sense of being a victim. Contents of daily logbook: Have to Wait; Luck of the Draw; Majority Rules; Mess-Ups; Not Available; Other People's Decisions; Rules Rule; Safety First; Time's Up: Up to parents; Just as I Had Hoped or Better.

Grade Lvl: T Author: Cotugno, Albert J
Length: 367 Copyright: 2011

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often demonstrate significant deficiencies in social interaction and social communication skills, so it is critical to understand and develop interventions which directly address these needs. This book explores the core areas of ASD development and related deficits, and introduces a practical program to assess and remediate these social competency issues. This book addresses the primary issues of social development in children with ASD by emphasizing the underlying theoretical and pragmatic considerations. Dr. Cotugno employs concepts and theories of group therapy and cognitive-development and integrates them with skill-based instructional approaches to develop the comprehensive Social Competence Enhancement Program (SCEP). This peer-based, group-focused program is explained in detail, including a step-by-step guide to its implementation and a full range of tasks and activities that can be used by practitioners at each stage of the process. This book will be a valuable resource for teachers, clinicians and all other professionals working with children with ASD who are interested in using group interventions as a means to improve social competency and treat social skills deficits.

Length: 60 Copyright: 2010

By providing a CD and book now you can print as many strategies you want onto standard labels and flipbooks and save the formatted stickers in Word for your student. You can still print from formatted strategies in the included book. A popular tool, the previous book included actual stickers, making it expensive to print. This CD/book package is half the first version's price and more versatile! While originally developed for use with students with social cognitive learning challenges (Asperger's, high-functioning autism, ADHD, etc.), these strategies can easily be applied to any child who needs that strong visual reminder - a more powerful teacher than an adult's "nag." This CD/book package allows for a student to learn a strategy presented in the book, then the instructor sticks the strategy sticker in a flip notebook. The student carries the flipbook with him/her throughout the day. With the flipbook, the student can easily and discretely refer to the strategies s/he already learned to solve problems with independence. The result is fewer behavioral breakdowns and classroom disruptions, while teaching self-reliance and problem-solving anytime, anywhere. This is a great tool for a student who recognizes his/her weaknesses and is motivated to improve. This tool is not effective for students who either don't realize that they need improvement or who aren't motivated to help themselves. Enhanced strategies include those for: Asking for Help; Emotions and Problem Solving; Organization, Writing and Homework; Group Work; Social Thinking; Family Time - Home Strategies This innovative tool is best for 3rd grade to 12th grade students.

Stories help learners with social cognitive learning challenges make good choices - in their thoughts, actions and words--that result in improved social interactions. The author, a speech-language pathologist, designed the stories to help children with high-functioning autism and Asperger's syndrome. The highly-illustrated stories have a formulaic and consistent format with familiar scenarios. The short stories provide opportunities for students to identify social dilemmas, express ideas to make the dilemmas better, and gain more understanding in how one person's behavior can positively or negatively impact the outcome(relationship) between people. Kit also contains a CD with diagrams, checklists, scripts, story boards, and 21 stories.

KM 12587KM 12587 We Thinkers! Volume 2 Social Problem Solvers
Grade Lvl: T Author: Hendrix, Ryan E / Zweber Palmer, Kari
Length: 0 Copyright: 2016

Volume 2 of this early learner series for ages 4-7 builds upon Volume 1(KM 11864 Incredible Flexible You Social Thinking Early Learners Curriculum-(title changed to We Thinkers! Volume 1 Social Explorers)) and explores five new Social Thinking concepts to encourage peers to work and play more effectively together. The We Thinkers! Vol. 2 Deluxe Package includes 5 storybooks (6.Hidden Rules and Expected and Unexpected Behaviors; 7.Smart Guess; 8.Flexible and Stuck Thinking; 9.Size of the Problem; 10.Sharing an Imagination), an expanded curriculum (Social Problem Solvers Curriculum), and an additional book that introduces GPS (Group Collaboration, Play and Problem Solving) which presents a play scale & observation/scoring tools and related differentiated play activities. We Thinkers! Volume 2 delves deeper into how to figure out the social clues to share space, interact, and regulate emotions. Explores the concepts related to “social executive functioning”-- skills that help children learn to better self-regulate their behavior and emotions when sharing space or interacting with others. Social executive functioning is used in the classroom when sitting in a group to learn, it’s used when running onto the playground to play with others, and kids use it to figure out how to join a play group. It involves surveying a social situation, understanding what the group is doing, considering others’ ideas, having enough flexibility (in thoughts and behavior) to ride out the shifts and changes that may occur, negotiating roles, turns, or positions, and self-regulating to keep emotions, actions and reactions under control when problems arise. Kit also contains a USB drive with teaching materials that are found in the GPS & Curriculum books. Contents from the USB drive have been printed out and spiral-bound for convenience & so use of the USB drive is not needed. Use Volume 1 (KM11864) before using Volume 2.
