Abstract

To be successful in today's world, all children need to become competent in emotional, social and organizational skills. This engaging and easy-to-implement resource will be an invaluable tool for teaching these essential life skills to children of all abilities. Each chapter is subject-themed, and includes a checklist of objectives, lesson ideas, activities and fully-photocopiable worksheets. From developing organizational skills by making use of timetables, reports and note-taking, to promoting self-esteem by creating acrostic poems, "Set for Success" offers a series of structured yet fun-filled exercises that cater for all learning styles and levels of emotional and social proficiency. This practical resource is ideal for children aged 3-10, but many of the activities can easily be adapted for older children who need extra support in developing emotional, social and organizational skills.
