Teachers have fun teaching and students have fun learning good behavior skills with We Have Skills, a K-3 curriculum that focuses on the 7 social skills teachers say they want their students to know and practice in the classroom. A survey of 1800 educators reports that when students know how to:
- Follow Directions
- Do the Best You Can
- Ask For Help
- Follow the Rules
- Work Out Strong Feelings
- Get Along With Others
... teachers see less misbehavior and more learning in the classroom.
Simple songs and animated animal friends enliven 7 short video lessons. Video examples show students in multiple classrooms practicing, improving and enjoying learning social skills. In recent evaluations, students who used We Have Skills showed twice the social skill growth than those in a control group.
Supported by funding from the US Department of Education, this research-based curriculum is a perfect blend of PBIS (Positive Behavior and Intervention Support) and RtI (Response to Intervention). Designed as a universal prevention strategy important for all children, We Have Skills also includes additional activities that support more intensive work with students who have challenging behavior.
