Shooting Stars: My 10 week social skills SPORTS group!

We all have our standard counseling groups-one for anxiety, a lunch bunch for friendship, a social thinking review.  This group, however is unique, and always a lot of fun to do.

I don't run this group every year, and it's really based on the student need.  It's a great way to get those kids who wouldn't normally buy into social groups, into one, because it revolves around sports. I actually have students begging to make  up group and come even after it's finished.  :)

I put together my newest TPT store packet to share, but also as a reference for myself.  Sometimes, it's nice not to have to think too much, and just pull out a piece of paper to tell you what to do, right?

So here's the premise of this group:

  • It's a 10 week (30 minute) social skills group, designed for kiddos in 3rd-5th grade
  • The group is geared toward those who need support in the areas of friendship or general social skills
  • It uses sports to support the lessons of complicating others, controlling one's body, and disagreeing respectfully.
  • My packet includes: an overview of the group, a parent letter template, a template for the reward, a kiddo invite and survey and an outline for each session.
Here's an example below of one of the session outlines:
