Making Friends and Working Together | Grades 2-5

( View ASL )

During weekly sessions, students will identify their likes, dislikes, interests, and hobbies through projects and group discussions. As a group, we will discuss different adaptations from basic to high tech and learn how to talk about what we need in the classroom, at home, and in the community. Together we will also explore different strategies to make friends and work with new people. Each student will explore their unique needs and learn how to be a great advocate. Thematic units will support acquisition of Self-Determination skills.
