The Life Skills series was developed top equip the busy classroom teacher with practical and relevant ideas fro enhancing essential life skills in individual students.
There are numerous articles and resources aimed at addressing topical life issues such as bullying, self esteem, coping with loss or disability, dealing with divorce and so on, yet most of these resources are aimed at a whole school level and rarely provide practical, ready-to-use materials for a classroom or individual student.
This innovative series aims to fill the gap between the frameworks set out by national bodies and the delivery of sensitive, yet meaningful, lessons in the everyday class.
Many of the topics that are dealt with in this series are specifically designed for a particular event that may arise in the classroom.
Activites can be used in one-on-one discussions or as whole class activities, depending on the situation.
The materials are designed for middle to upper primary students, however, the ideas and information are appropriate for all school aged children.
Each book contains extensive background notes for teachers, parents and students.
Many sections contain annotated resource lists for multimedia, literature and general classroom resources.
This series includes four titles:
- bullying and conflict
- grief, illness and other issues
- family relationships
- self esteem and values
The Self Esteem and Values book focuses on student feelings, self awareness, self esteem, goal setting and enriching values both in school and in the wider community.
Activities include setting attainable goals, analysing personal strengths and weaknesses and exploring ways to demonstrate values, as well as fun stuff like developing board games for the bored!
