A Special Education Teacher making efforts to help her students connect weekly vocabulary words to fun children’s books.
Go here for the start of Words and Tips From Miss ____:
This week in social skills, we will discuss problem solving. Often, when students participate in group activities, they get upset when someone else gets something they wanted, such as a game color or piece being chosen first. We will focus on the fact that some problems are really big while other are little or simply glitches. Problems require different reactions, emotions and solutions based on their size.
Important Vocabulary For This Week:
Tiny problem vs. Big Problem- understanding that problems differ in severity, which then assists in helping one to react appropriately to personal situations.
