All kids feel hurt when they are ignored or excluded whether at home, at school, on the sports field, or within a group. This engaging video and print curriculum explores true-to-life scenarios in which upper elementary students experience the disappointment and sadness of being left out. It teaches students specific skills to use when they feel left out, how to express their emotions using "I" statements and how to take positive actions to help them feel better.
The program includes a comprehensive Teacher's Resource Book written by a certified Special Education teacher. The guide includes a Differentiated Lesson Plan and extension activities to accompany the video.
Research-Based video, plus teacher’s resource book with differentiated lesson plan, student handouts and pre/post test in digital format
Children feel hurt when they are excluded or ignored, but there are some practical steps that can be taken to help them deal with their emotions and take positive action. This program presents three scenarios acted by elementary school age children as two young narrators discuss the steps to take to try to resolve the situations. The topics covered are feeling ignored within a group of friends, feeling excluded because you are in a new situation and shy, and feeling left out because someone is turning the group against you. In each situation, the same four steps are used to resolve it: take some time to think, use "I" statements to express your feelings, brainstorm ideas, and finally take action. In some situations, the person is able to resolve the problem on their own, and other times a family member or trusted adult helps out. Upbeat background music and colorful sets add interest and provide transitions. A valuable 52-page teacher's guide is included with resources, lesson plans, and extension ideas. School counselors and teachers will find this useful.
