As a supplement to the Skillstreaming in Early Childhood program book, the Student Workbook jumpstarts student learning, structures the Skillstreaming teaching process for both new and experienced group leaders, and is an excellent tool for promoting parent involvement.

Available in convenient sets of 10 Student Workbooks (includes Group Leader’s Guide).

Student Workbook

Introduction for Parents

When children share this brief overview and their workbook progress with parents, parents become more willing and able to support skill practice and skill use outside the learning setting.

Understanding Skillstreaming

Featuring illustrations of LeRoy the Frog and a diverse group of children, these pages offer entertaining activities to capture children’s attention while they learn the role-playing process and master the steps of Listening, their very first social skill.

More Practice and Good Ideas

Successful skill use depends on more than just learning skill steps. This part of the workbook focuses on such critical factors as choosing the right time and place, understanding body language, and identifying feelings.

Group Leader's Guide

Essential for use with the Student Workbook, the Group Leader’s Guide tells leaders exactly what to do, page by page, when using the Student Workbook to teach the Skillstreaming process. In addition, it includes numerous teaching tips and suggestions for related activities to enhance children’s learning, as well as reproducible skill posters, skill cards, and role-play tags.

Book Review

"I liked the way this program is packaged with guide and workbooks. I have used Skillstreaming successfully with elementary age students. I have observed that students enjoy watching adults role play a social skill and then practicing the skill by role playing it with a peer. Skillstreaming can be successfully taught by a teacher, counselor, or social worker. It is most important that the teacher be included in the skill training so that he or she can reinforce the skills during the course of the day. This package of leader’s guide and student workbooks not only makes it easy and fun for teachers to use Skillstreaming with students but also describes how parents can be included.
