Now remember, the more you practice… …the better you get! And the better you get… The more you learn! And? School will be more fun! We Have Skills! is a classroom solution bringing social skills lessons to students. Sorry I didn’t see you there. It’s okay. Teachers and researchers agree social skills learning is essential for
academic success. You know, when the classroom is clicking along, and they know what the expectations are, and they have a real clear picture of this is what you should do if you need help – raise your hand. This is what you should do if you’re feeling upset so kids can work on controlling their anger. Then it really makes my job easier as a teacher. We surveyed over a thousand teachers to
identify the core skills students need for social and academic success. With the help of top researchers at the University of Oregon and funding from the Department of Education, IRIS Educational Media has developed We Have Skills! an effective lesson plan with eight videos, songs, posters and printables. With the help of animal friends, students learn to practice these skills and improve their behavior. Skills include listening following directions and working out strong feelings. What are skills?
