Skill of the Week

At Little Flower Catholic Elementary School we are starting to implement the Boys Town Education Model (BTEM).  A key component of this model is teaching social skills.  This week we are on our sixth “Skill of the Week” which is listening.


This week we are working on listening.  The steps for this skill are: 1. Look at the person who is talking and remain quiet, 2. Wait until the person is through talking before you speak, 3. Show that you heard the person by nodding your head, saying “Okay,” “That’s interesting,” etc.


Skills covered so far include:

Greeting others

Getting the teacher’s attention

Following instructions

Asking for help
