Building Children’s Social Skills through Folktales

Return to Shop

This new training program features a collection of 31 captivating folktales for teaching social skills to elementary students. It emphasizes written language (reading and writing), expressive language (role playing), and receptive language (storytelling).

Although this curriculum stands alone, the authors suggest that it can be used as an extension of their recent publication for younger students — Taking Part: Introducing Social Skills to Children.

Working Together‘s lessons and activities are divided into five units:

  • Making Conversation and Expressing Feelings
  • Cooperating with Peers
  • Playing with Peers
  • Responding to Conflict and Aggression
  • Performing in the Classroom

Appendixes provide 64 reproducible blackline masters, posters listing the skill steps for each skill, a parent letter for each unit, and self-assessment forms that students can use to rate their own progress. A CD is included with the manual. It contains printable PDFs of the stories, reproducible student handouts, and program forms.
