Cooperating with others and successfully working or playing in a group, is so important in school and in everyday life!
In school, home and in the community, children are expected to be able to negotiate and cooperate in group work and play.
In this packet, children learn the behaviors that are "helpful or unhelpful" while working or playing with others and are encouraged to think about WHY that may be.
The activity is broken down into two parts: Working in a Group, and Playing in a Group. Each has 2 sets of cards, one written and one picture to use with older/reader and younger/non reader children, making the materials appropriate for students k-5th grade or ability levels.
Children build behavior charts representing a variety of helpful and unhelpful behaviors while working or playing in a group. The charts encourage a lot of great discussion.
Laminate and use again and again. Bring out the charts to review when students are experiencing particular problems working or playing in groups.
Editable cards provided so that you can individualize as problems come up with your students. Editable sections on behavior boards allow you can rename the behavior, if you wish, i.e. change Helpful and Unhelpful to what ever you want.
