I review "patience" and then move on to how we need "self-control" in order to practice patience. We also talk about how it is sometimes difficult to be patient. We watch a Sesame Street video, "Self-Control" featuring The Cookie Monster. After discussing the video, I do a bubble activity in which I blow bubbles and tell the students not to blow them. We talk about how it is hard not to, even though they really want to. I ask the students to help each other out and to practice self-control.

After dressing Froggy again to review having to complete certain tasks before getting to do what we want, I talk about how these types of tasks require patience. I give the example of having to wait for a parent to get off the phone before being able to talk to them. My definition of patience is: to wait calmly. To reaffirm this point, I show the Sesame Street video "Patience" featuring Zac Efron and Elmo. After, I then play the game "Simon Says". This helps the students practice waiting…

Before the bubble activity, I go over ways to practice self-control. This is also highlighted in the Sesame Street Cookie Monster video. I have made a poster but it is not necessary. The steps of self-control are as follows: 1. Stop, 2. Think, 3. Belly Breathe, 4. Go. I have the students stand up to practice belly breathing and I encourage them to use this technique when I blow the bubbles and ask them not to pop them.

In order to transition from the previous lesson, I have a cut-out version of Froggy and his clothing that I use to "dress" Froggy with the class. We talk about the order of dressing him and how he must do all of this before heading outside to do what he wants-play. After dressing Froggy, we do an activity where students sort activities based on what needs to be done first, and then second. Ex: Dinner then dessert, table work then free playtime, homework then play outside.

Sesame Street: The Biscotti Kid.  All about listening skills.  Watching with eyes, listening with ears, quiet voice, calm body.  I plan to use with social skills lessons.

1. Read Froggy Gets Dressed, and stress the idea that Froggy wants to play outside but he has a series of tasks (getting all his winter clothing on) to do before he can go out and play. I also stress the idea that it may get tiring to do all of the "work" before he can "play" and list examples of this happening to us in real life. ex: wanting to play before doing our work/homework.
