Latest Batch of Social Skills Videos!
Our Latest Additions this Month!
As we announced last month, we’ll be adding new videos to our library every month from now until the end of the school year! We’ve also been playing around with new features such as our Social Shorts and animations. Our first video featuring animations is out now!
To test out our videos you can try with our free, unlimited free trial! This lets you watch all the videos from any device (and get our companion worksheets) free for 30 days. To sign up for the free trial, visit this link.
Video 1: Sharing
Sharing focuses on the consequences of not sharing with another person. Christine is having a tough time sharing the iPad with Bobby who then in turn has negative feelings about her and does not want to play with her. Christine learns that sharing, although hard, is a necessary part of friendships.
Video 2: Opinions
In Opinions, our students learn how to voice an opinion without making others upset. We also take a look at what happens when someone has a different opinion than you. Andrew tries to change Bobby’s mind rather than accepting that other people have their own thoughts. By the end, he learns that it is okay for others to have differing opinions. This is a helpful skill that is important in many aspects of life from school to a work environment.
Video 3: Compromising
As you can see from the picture, this is our first release of videos with animation. We are so excited to hear what you guys think! We really loved the idea of using visuals to explain difficult concepts such as compromising. Each box above the girl’s heads represents something they want to do. Later in the video we actually show the ideas rather than just colored boxes. They learn to take one idea from both people, while each giving up one idea, to compromise. Let us know if you want to see more animations like this one!
Video 4: Using Clues in Conversation
This video is a nice example to teach students how to use the clues that are around them to connect with others. At the beginning Kate isn’t sure what to talk about with Emily and their conversation ends as quickly as it began. When she observes Emily and looks at the clues she sees that Emily is carrying a Harry Potter notebook. That must be something Emily is interested in! When Kate brings up the books, the girls have a lot to talk about!
We hope you and your students are enjoying this new batch! Be on the lookout for next month’s as well! Feel free to let us know you’re thoughts in emails, comments here, or on Facebook!
