While working as a support teacher, I have found social groups are brilliant for children who need to develop appropriate social and behavioural skills.
Social skills groups enable the children to practise appropriate skills in a fun and safe environment. We recently set up a new social skills group so this post is to give a brief outline of what we hope to cover over the next 5/6 weeks.
The main skills we plan on working on over the next few weeks are; turn taking, following instructions, conversation skills and winning/losing.
Week 1; Getting to know you
Find out 3 things about the person beside you
Would you rather?
Week 2; Science experiments
Find the best coin cleaner (lesson plan here)
Week 3; Stem Activities
Week 4; Baking
Week 5; Art
