Developing Social Skills

Posted on

Being able to communicate effectively is one of the most important aims for me . I usually find the students shy to speak up in front of a gathering or group and I find games are simply a great way to foster learning by boosting studentscritical thinking skills. In our first unit Who We Are I make the students play board games. It gives them an opportunity to work through acting appropriately in various situations. Social skill activities need to be embedded into everything we do. Many students need help with social skills. Using appropriate social skills means doing the right thing and knowing what the right thing is to do, it’s responding appropriately and thinking about the feelings of others.

These role play cards focus on the character traits relating to our unit Role Models which helps them to choose and relate to their role models.

A fun way to help young people to develop deeper social understanding.

These fun role-play scenarios enable young people to practice and reinforce both verbal and non-verbal cues in simple scenarios
