Each group begins with an inclusion activity that supports the skills introduced, a kid friendly definition of the skill, and a closure activity that wraps the group and checks for understanding.
- Purpose of the group
- Read R1's story
- Use the Alien Name Generator to find out your Alien Name
- Interview a partner and introduce them to the group
Skill: Verbal and Nonverbal Communication
Skill: Stop and Think of Consequences
Poor R1, as an alien he misunderstands social cues all the time. In the second lesson, students listen to a journal entry about the day R1 comes to earth. He makes a lot of mistakes! Students write down the social clues he missed and then help him to correct them.
Skill: Summarize Learning
I hope you have fun with your Out of this World Social Skills group! I think it will be a blast (rockets optional)!
