Student Management

Lifeskills

At the start of the year ask students to come up with important skills that need to be used both in and outside of school. These skills would include such things as honesty, flexibility, friendship, etc. Click here to download a list of all of the Lifeskills with definitions. Share this list with your class after they have had a chance to suggest their own. Write all of the skills you think to be important on a large sheet of butcher paper. Create a "contract" with your class that states that you will all try your hardest to practice these skills all year long. You and your students should sign it and it should be posted in the room as a constant reminder to everyone. Award students who use these skills - you may even want to dedicate a bulletin board on which to post awards along with descriptions of how the skills were demonstrated.
