Behavior Management 101: Topic 6

Topic 6: Behavior Management:
Social Skills Groups

In my small groups, which are social skills groups, I see from 2-6 students at a time.  Since these kids are there for social skills issues, behavior management is a primary focus.  I rely on the work of Michelle Garcia Winner and her Social Thinking curriculum.  I use a combination of the before mentioned approaches including a heavy dose of fun and humor.  An invaluable tool has been the use of her approach which I call "Thought Marbles" because I use marbles instead of sticks.  Since this post is a day late and I have already written a post on this subject, I will simply post a link to that article: Thought Marbles.
