What Are Life Skills? Life skills must be taught to students in special education to help them become independent and successful. Life skills instruction combines academic, daily living, occupational, and interpersonal skills to teach students how to live and work in the community. Trying to find time in our busy school day to fit in these lessons is really hard but we can try and practice them at school and home!
Use this resource as part of your Life Skills Curriculum. You can use the activities included as a whole group or in small group instruction. I would also make this an independent center! There is enough content in this resource to last the entire month. This resource goes over topics like reading nutrition labels, going out to eat, the 5 food groups, and exercising!
