The Resiliency Bundle Pack from Susan Traugh's Daily Living Skills workbooks helps students negotiate the interactions needed to successfully move back into the social- and school-world after the isolation of COVID and provides life skills and transition skills necessary for adult living.
Offered at 10% off the single-book prices, this bundle includes the three books Practicing Mindfulness, Goal Setting, and Becoming Likeable. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress while actually increasing cognitive skills. A short, daily 10-minute practice can enhance student learning and provide the stabilizing effects that will help students transition back into the classroom. Setting goals allows students to focus on moving forward with confidence and success rather than seeing the obstacles reintegration into society might cause. And reviewing the skills needed to make and keep friendships will give students the confidence they need to become social beings again and have concrete steps they can take to becoming likeable.
The Resiliency Bundle Pack provides instruction in adult living skills and transitional skills for both mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike and provides adult living skills for special needs teens to meet federal transition mandates, Indicator 13 requirements, and SCAN recommendations.
Like the other books in this series, it contains airy-pages and bullet-point information for easy, independent study, yet, these books, nevertheless, respect teens’ maturity and humor while presenting federally mandated Indicator 13 skills and transition skills needed for adult independence. Each lesson is taught in a short one-to-four page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real world activities are provided whenever possible.
