- Life's Lessons for Children
Life's Lessons for Children offers short scenarios dealing with every day issues confronted by the school-aged child.
Children listen and learn from stories, not from lectures. Storytelling comfortably opens dialog so a child can think and discover good solutions to everyday problems they face. The book provides all you need to get children to start thinking about issues like bullying, gender identity, sexual abuse, and behavioral problems.
Each story deals with timely topics which represent challenging problems children face in a less than ideal world. Character development is introduced, and core values of respect, compassion, honesty, fairness, and trustworthiness are dramatized.
Each child's story offers an age-appropriate scenario with an easy-to-follow, simple to implement, detailed lesson plan. Thought-provoking questions are included, as well as teaching strategies, correlating activities, evaluation means, and suggested further readings. Each lesson is linked to a National Health Education Standard, allowing adaptation into any health curriculum. Softcover, 68 pages. Ages 6 - 12 years.
