Some kids are so driven to win, they try to do so at all costs - even when it has a negative impact on those around them. Learning to display good sportsmanship whether winning or losing is a tough lesson for many adults to learn, let alone kids! The activity guide created to go along with the book, If Winning Isn't Everything, Why do I Hate to Lose?, contains twenty-one lessons and activities for educators to use with their K through 5 students. Each lesson is designed to teach and reinforce the social skill of "Displaying Good Sportsmanship."
School Counselors, coaches and educators who work with K through 5 students will teach children to be creative and critical thinkers through writing prompts and cooperative group work. Several activities can be combined to support common core learning initiatives, and are identified in the activity guide. Step-by-step instructions, lists of materials, worksheets and answer keys are provided. The enclosed CD includes ready-to-print forms and handouts. 40 pgs.
