Each lesson can be implemented in approximately 20 minutes, including the time to watch the 2-3 minute animated episode. The lesson plans include ideas for differentiated instruction ("Make it Easy" and "Make it Hard") as well as related activities aimed at generalizing the target social skill. Each theme also includes a list of meaningful vocabulary words, to be used at the teacher's discretion, as well as a "Character Catch Phrase," which teachers can use to remind their students of the target social skill.
"As a former Special Education Teacher I spent a great deal of time trying to communicate with my students the importance of Social Skills. The Teachtown products not only accomplish this, but they do it better! The interactive materials are designed to not only entertain students, but engage them on important lessons. I am excited to share this product with teachers!"
