SOCIAL SKILLS are a very important part of every child's education. These differentiated PROBLEM SIZE activities will help children who struggle to understand the important skill of matching their EMOTIONAL REACTION, to the SIZE OF THE PROBLEM.
Many children have a difficult time understanding the actual size of a problem, especially when the size of their emotions are much bigger than the size of the problem.
Included are 2 complete LESSON PLANS with ACTIVITIES, VISUALS, directions and suggestions for use. These lesson plans will explicitly teach children to:
IDENTIFY ⇒ different sizes of problems
THINK ⇒ about the way they feel when experiencing the problems
MATCH ⇒ their emotional reactions to the size of the problems
Included are WRITTEN cards and PICTURE cards to reach a wide variety of learners k-5th grade or ability level. Laminate the materials and have them handy for years to come.
Activities address OVER REACTIONS and UNDER REACTIONS. They can be used in small groups or as a whole class lesson. My students love engaging in these activities, I hope yours do too!
