Children in grades K-6 can read along and listen to author Julia Cook read RJ’s social skill story about teamwork and sharing. One track on the CD features the text only while a second track includes cues on when to turn the page for beginning readers or English Language Learners. Families can practice reading together while being entertained and learning valuable social skills for home and school. RJ’s having another bad day. His teacher wants him to work with bossy Bernice, messy Frankie, and Norma (who just sits and picks her nose) on a report about Egyptian mummies. After a frustrating school day with his “team,” RJ goes home to find only one cookie left in the jar. And his mom makes him share it with his sister!
With the help of his coach, RJ learns that working as a team and sharing are skills needed not just on the soccer field, but in school and at home too! This book is the fourth in Julia Cook’s BEST ME I Can Be! series which teaches children in grades K-6 social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. The skills are part of the Boys Town Education Model that has improved student behavior and classroom climates in hundreds of schools across the country. Includes an Audio CD; 32 pgs.
