This book is aimed at primary aged pupils and designed to help improve emotional, social and organisational skills. The philosophy of the book is that success breeds success and so with help, children are more likely to experience positive outcomes if these skills are honed. Activities in the book concentrate on being organised, persistent, confident and sociable, as well as being able to regulate one's own emotions, attain more independence and communicate effectively. Each of the chapters in the book provide lesson ideas, aims and objectives. The requirements for the activities which span many curriculum areas, such as science, technology, music, sport, literacy and numeracy, are all included. Worksheets are photocopiable and the activities cater for a range of learning styles and levels of competency. Although aimed at the primary age group many activities would be suitable for adaptation for older pupils. -- Special Needs Information Press
