List of Life Skills

A vital part of the classroom today is the teaching of Life Skills to our students. These skills should be posted in the classroom and should be taught as situations arrive. We all have teachable moments when an event leads us right into a discussion about one or more of these skills. However, I also enjoyed linking certain Life Skills to my units of study. By using these words and phrases consistently, my students take ownership of them, and understand that these are the skills that will help them to be successful in life!
