It’s easy for students to get distracted at school – students need to be taught how to ignore distractions! This interactive lesson helps students recognize when they’re being distracted and teaches them how to use self-talk to defend against the distractions. Bonus? The slideshow-based format means it’s super LOW PREP.
*Lesson plan works as a standalone OR as the first in a four-lesson unit bundled here!*
Engage your students in “The Case of the Super Students”: Ms. Lurnur’s class has gotten off the path towards becoming super students. Students become detectives and investigate what went wrong comparing how two different students in Ms. Lurnur’s class respond to distractions. Then students practice using self-talk themselves and also match self-talk to different distractions.
