This activity guide is a great addition to the terrific storybook Thanks for the Feedback… (I THINK!), part of the BEST ME I Can Be! series. Students in grades K through 6 will enjoy the activities as they learn and practice the social skills of “Accepting Positive Feedback” and “Accepting Negative Feedback.”
Author Julia Cook provides educators with creative ideas that will keep students engaged and learning. Activities include using crafts to provide compliments, identifying safe ways to provide negative feedback, doing self-evaluations, playing games, and of course creating opportunities to get students up and out of their seats!
Some of the activities include What’s In A Compliment?, in which students use the letters of the word “compliment” to learn how to think of nice things to say about someone else; Give “10!”, in which students practice getting better at giving genuine compliments; and Keeper or Pitcher? Steps to Becoming a Better “Me!”, in which students learn the difference between “Keeper Feedback” (helpful information they can use to grow and improve) and “Pitcher Feedback” (hurtful information they can ignore).
Teachers and educators will find ideas on how to blend some of the lessons into their academic teaching, plus ideas to help students practice the skills at home. Use these fun lessons to help your student succeed in the classroom and beyond by teaching them to accept compliments and criticism.
Each activity provides a list of materials when needed and teacher instructions. The activity guide also includes a digital content link for access to reproducible handouts, worksheets, and reward coupons. These skills are promoted in Well-Managed Schools as part of the Boys Town Education Model®. 32 pgs.
