Hi everyone! We’ve had a whirlwind of a fall, traveling to California multiple times for presentations and just getting back from ASHA last week. It was so amazing to meet so many Everyday Speech users! That was the best part of the convention for us, getting to know more customers and hearing how you guys use our video lessons. You guys are so awesome we truly appreciate you so much!!! Let’s get into the new videos ?
New Videos in November
Social Skills in Action
Condescending Tone of Voice – This video focuses on how using a condescending tone can make others feel bad. Students can role play along with the video and work on using different pitches and tones of voice!
Joining an Ongoing Conversation – We introduce a new concept in this video- the Conversation Stoplight. This helps students see when they have the “green light” to join in a conversation. When others are in the middle of talking they have a red light.
Listening to Friend’s Ideas – This video is all about playing with others and doing what’s fair for the group. One person doesn’t get to pick everything, that wouldn’t be fair. We should think about others and what is best for the group.
Rules Don’t Apply to You – This is another lesson to add to our collection on playing games with others. This video is intended for kiddos who get very upset when others don’t follow rules, but don’t exactly follow the rules themselves. This is a great opportunity to work on perspective taking.
Our newest modeling videos focus on school behavior by modeling how to show respect to teachers and how to use deep breathing as a strategy to calm down. This can be used with our latest collection of self-regulation videos.
Fork in the Road- Conversation Drivers & Stoppers – This activity is one of our new Fork in the Road games, using the familiar concept of Conversation Drivers & Stoppers. We use the “Social Fork” as a way to contrast behaviors and ask students to infer which path will lead to a positive outcome.
We hope you and your students love these new video lessons as much as we do! As always let us know what types of lessons and skills you want to see and keep your eyes peeled for all sorts of fun stuff added to our website!
