Some children seem to be socially adept from birth while others. struggle with various challenges of social acceptance Some. children make friends easily others are loners Some children have. self control and others have quick tempers Some are natural. leaders while others are withdrawn, Many aspects of social development seem to be an innate part of.
a child s temperament but we also know that the environment can. play an important part in shaping a child s social development In. the last ten years psychologists have become increasingly aware. that social skills can and should be taught Many studies have. shown that shy children can become more outgoing aggressive. children can learn self control and children who tend to be social. isolates can be taught how to make friends, There is no question that children with better social skills have a. significant advantage in life They not only experience the rewards. of positive relationships but they do better in school have a better. self image and in general are much more resilient as they face. life s inevitable challenges, This book is designed to teach social skills to many different types. of children particularly those with social problems Often labeled as. having a social skills deficit these children may be considered. aggressive socially isolated or shy The underlying concept is that. to proceed through the expected stages of their social. development children should posses all the skills addressed by this. book Written for use by groups of children such as a classroom or. a counseling group the activities are intended to help children in. every aspect of their social development as they relate their peers. their parents and their teachers While many activities can be used. with just one child it is hard to argue with the concept that social. skills are best learned in a social environment,A READY TO USE REPRODUCIBLE ACTIVITY BOOK vii. 22061 Spreads 1 11 06 11 02 AM Page viii,How To Use This Book.

viii 101 WAYS TO TEACH CHILDREN SOCIAL SKILLS,22061 Spreads 1 11 06 11 02 AM Page 1. Communicating, Effective communication the foundation of social success consists of. many distinct skills The activities in this section will help children. communicate who they are to others and learn the skills that are so. important in forming friendships, Social communication is a language and children are born with. differences in their ability to learn this language just as they have other. learning differences But there is no question that with practice and. encouragement effective communication can be taught. This section begins by helping children understand and express what. makes them unique As children learn to convey their interests their values. and even their problems they increase their self acceptance and self. confidence, The next step is to help children learn the skills involved in making an initial. connection with other children Children need to know how to introduce. themselves how to develop a personal dialog with one child and then how. to maintain a conversation in a group Many children who have problems in. social skills choose the wrong tactics for interacting with other children. They may brag and try to get the attention of others an approach that can. often lead to group rejection Other children may hang back just observing. the group which may result in them being ignored, It is not helpful to criticize children for their inappropriate behavior.
Criticism may lead to self consciousness and even resentment A better. approach is to teach children new skills and let them experience the. immediate rewards of new social success The skills that children learn in this. section will help them with adults as well as with other children And the. more that parents and teachers model and encourage good communication. skills in children the more quickly these skills will be learned.

sentences focusing on something they think is either special or unique. about themselves perhaps a talent a favorite hobby or a special. experience they have had At the bottom of their paper have them write. two or three of their physical traits e g long hair brown eyes to make it. easier for the others to guess whose paper is being read. Put the papers into a basket or shoebox and have children take turns. choosing a paper to read aloud As each paper is read the others try to guess. whose it is When someone guesses correctly the special person talks. more about what he has written The other children are given an. opportunity to add to the conversation relating their own experiences or. interests to whatever the special person has focused on. The person who guessed correctly is the next to choose a paper and the. activity continues until all the papers have been shared. 2 101 WAYS TO TEACH CHILDREN SOCIAL SKILLS,22061 Spreads 1 11 06 11 02 AM Page 3.
