Description

One of my top requested lessons is on staying focused by identifying and ignoring distractions. While most students are taught to ignore, explicitly teaching them self-talk gives them the tools to do so!
 
This lesson plan (ASCA and CASEL aligned) includes a set of two types of scripts for 7 different common scenarios in upper elementary school that distract our students plus an intro video, mini-poster, and exit ticket. Here are some options for how to use the scripts:
 
Option A: Pick a few to act out with you and some strong readers in class.
 
Option B: Place the students in small groups, give them scripts and about 10 minutes to “prepare”, and then ask them to perform the skit for the group.
 
Option C: Each scenario is a different center with 4 copies of the script. Groups rotate through and at each one they chorally read the scenario and then each read the self-talk portion of the script aloud individually.
