Ever struggle with patiently parenting your kiddos through any of these challenges?
- Being too bossy
- Difficulty compromising
- Getting worried
- Being inflexible
- Being too silly
As parents and educators, we too were hungry for high-quality and kid-friendly resources to help our own children (and our students) develop social skills around common social challenges.
Despite searching far and wide, we couldn’t find the right tools…and so, we made them.
After two years of development with educators and specialists, we are excited to now be using the best resources ever to proactively address common social challenges with our own children and our students!
Get ready to meet The A-Team – a friendship group whose members help each other with social skills & common social challenges in class, at school and also with friends!
Each book in the series unfolds from the perspective of one of the A-Team members as they struggle on just one specific social skill challenge. As you read a book, you join the characters as they participate in their A-Team meetings, led by their teacher Ms. Corina. Their meetings are where they learn specific strategies and get Top Secret Missions that help them get better at dealing with their social challenges.
In this way, parents and educators will find these books to be an invaluable resource for teaching social skills to ALL kids.
The books are all beautifully illustrated and instantly relatable to kids! Parents who were dealing with common social challenges before will now be able to support their kids with specific strategies outlined in digestible bites each book. What a relief!
Come visit us at sociallearning.org where you can learn more about the A-Team, find resources, get ideas for activities for social learning in our blog posts and get a copy of your favorite A-Team books to use with your kiddos!
