My students need hands on ways of learning social skills. Mad Dragon, Impulse Control game, Consequences and Know the Code create a fun way to understand social skills.
My students have a difficult time in social situations such as the hallway, lunch room, recess and PE. They don't have the social skills to create lasting relationships and function daily in the classroom with peers. Using games to teach these skills opens up a new understanding for them.
My students have emotional and behavioral needs that affect how they act in the classroom.
It also affects how they form relationships with peers. This can be frustrating and make school an unpleasant experience for them. They want so bad to have friends and be just like others but they lack the social skills to do so. Although our school is a wonderfully inviting place that works with me and my students to help them succeed in class and in life, it is not always the experience they hope for due to their lack of social skills.
My students need a hands on way to learn social skills. I am requesting a variety of games to include, Mad Dragon, Impulse Control, Consequences and Know the Code. By using these materials I would be able to create lessons based on the individual needs of each student. It will allow me to make lessons that will teach them the individual socials skills they need to make friends, participate in class, go to PE and recess, eat in the cafeteria and be a part of extracurricular activities. Each game is geared towards specific behavior needs such as control, impulse, hitting, yelling, running and throwing. They will use the games while in my room in a small group setting of no more than 6. This allows them a safe environment to practice. They get to have fun, laugh and create friendships in the classroom that will help them in their everyday life.
Using the games allows me to let the student practice the skills in a small environment where they feel safe before using them in the real world.
They become friends in the classroom using the skills and playing the game in a fun way and it helps them become confident enough to make friends and use the skills outside of the classroom. I want to help my students become confident in who they are and be able to go out and make friends and become productive parts of society.
