Children and adults alike struggle with the challenge of using their social filter. Though we try to teach our children about this from a young age, it’s confusing for children to understand why we tell them to be honest or to speak up in one setting, then tell them to keep their thoughts to themselves in another. These children need to learn skills of “How to Analyze Social Situations” and “How to Choose Appropriate Words to Say.”

More and more, educators are being asked to help teach and reinforce these social skills in their work with students. And that’s where this book comes into play. Author Julia Cook worked with expert Jill Kuzma to identify unique ways for students to learn and practice these difficult skills. More than 20 activities designed to help students visualize what a social filter is, and then practice using their social filters in a safe setting are provided. These activities help accompany the storybook I Can’t Believe You SAID That!

Each activity provides a list of materials and teacher instructions. Elementary educators will enjoy being able to pick up this book and quickly use the activities with their K through 6 students.
