Social Skills and Character Building
Worksheets for Kids:
Ideas for Using the Boost Kids Activity Book in the Classroom
One of the three main components of the Boost Kids curriculum is the activity book. It was the original component developed by Boost Kids and used in schools and social service agencies to begin our mission of teaching social skills and character development to today’s youth. The book was designed in the hopes of providing parents and educators a set of readings and social skills worksheets for kids to help them understand the life skills we all embrace but never had in writing. It was designed to give young people a simple and easy set of strategies or skills to confidently enter the social and character testing challenges we all face in life. The book contains eight lessons with twenty-eight topics covering the key characteristics most important for the social and character responsibilities of adulthood. Here is a comprehensive list of the areas of development addressed in Boost Kids.

Each area you see mentioned above is specifically covered in the book. A short reading on each topic provides an analysis and strategies for use when faced with one of these situations. There is also an inspirational quote at the beginning of each topic to continue to enrich their knowledge in this area. Also included at the end of each lesson are social skills and character building worksheets for kids to fill out. Each worksheet provides a series of fill-in-the-blank statements from the readings to review what was learned. The first three lesson fill-ins present social skills worksheets for the kids, while the remaining lesson fill-ins offer character building worksheets. Through the readings, quotes, and worksheets the book supplies a tool kids can learn from and parents or teachers can refer to in educating their kids on the social and character traits needed for success in life.
