The Affects on Preschool Students When Social Skills Lessons Are Introduced
Davis, Pamela J.
Online Submission
This study was conducted to see what happens when preschool students were exposed to social skills lessons. The students that were selected attended preschool full day and year round. The students were given a pre survey on skills. The lessons consisted of six lessons that students seemed to struggle in. Books and activities were provided each week around a certain skill. Students were monitored each day on how they socialize with their classmates. Journals, behavioral logs, target sheets, etc. were used to measure student improvement. At the end of the six weeks, students were given the post survey and compared their answers. Students were able to give more appropriate answers in the post survey. Parents were given a survey and feedback was welcomed. The results showed that most students benefited from the teaching targets and some needed additional practice. Students displayed other social skills that I could teach if given more time. This study was insightful and gave good teaching experience. An appendix presents: the pre & post student survey, parent survey, and daily/weekly behavior log. (Contains 3 graphs.)
