All 5th grade students will be in a Social Skills class for one term in the specials rotation.  

The curriculum is constantly evolving as the students show where they are proficient and areas in need of reinforcement. Areas we may cover are:

  • Managing Strong Feelings
  • Telling others what bothers us
  • Positive Ways to Handle Harassment and Bullying
  • Showing Respect through listening
  • Using "I" statements
  • Making WISE decisions
  • Setting Goals
  • Introduction to Careers

Everything is completed in class either individually, in small groups and/or full class discussions. Although we do some worksheets and projects, I place a big emphasis on active learning and "thinking outside the box". We do alot of team building activities that help students learn the importance of perseverance, leadership, cooperation, and patience.
