Each book includes a removable social skills handbook and family discussion starters.
“This workbook is designed to teach a young child social skill in various situations such as: making friends, in the classroom, with family, in restaurants etc. There are drawing activities (draw a picture of what you want to look like when you play), cutting and gluing (make puppets and act out playing with a friend), questions throughout about how to be a friend with ideas, how to act in the classroom (draw or write rules of the classroom), spatial awareness, (draw how it feels if someone is sitting or standing too close and how you feel), scenarios of what to do if you do not want to go near someone’s pet, or if you do.”
“This workbook is well-done and would be great for children in K-1- especially those that may not have experienced preschool and have not been around a lot of children.”
“The activities are interesting and fun, simple and quick.”
“I like the note at the beginning tells parents to support their children as they go through these activities and to listen and answer their questions. I like that this can help parents learn more about their children’s thought process and learn more about what may be happening in school. I also think this book would be helpful for a child with Autism or other special needs to support their social skills growth.”
