“Pay attention!” If your students’ minds are wandering, teach them skills to stay focused and reach goals. More than 20 classroom-friendly lessons include behavior management tools that teach kids how to complete tasks successfully and on time. The activities in this book support Common Core, Social Skill Development, and Academic literacy standards and are designed to accompany the Spacing Out! picture book.
Using the story as a stimulus, students will explore making predictions, comparing characters, cause and effect, sequencing, and making story maps. Discussion questions relating to the story help students develop critical thinking skills and determine the positive outcomes for completing tasks and the negative consequences of becoming distracted. Additional activities reinforce social skill development for setting goals, identifying things to work on, coping with distractions, and celebrating success.
The activities are appropriate for K through 5 classroom and can be used with individuals, small groups, or large groups. Educators will appreciate the easy-to-use activities, with step-by-step instructions, lists of materials, worksheets, and answer keys. Comes with ready-to-print forms and handouts on CD. 52 pgs.
