Month of Social Graces
Just like not all students come to school as readers, not all students are equipped with the skills of making friends or appropriately dealing with their emotions to allow them to do so. Those students must be taught social skills just like a child must be taught to read. Before we can expect them to respond or make friends like we hope they will, they must have the tools they need to get the results we hope for. It’s important that in school, we coach and model these skills. These lessons teach social graces by coaching students through bibliotherapy, situational scenarios, reflecting, and fun games.
