Social skills in Preschool settings
Abstract The purpose of this study is to illustrate the developmental impact social skills education has on preschool age students. Fifteen preschool age students, ages three to four years old, would have been observed in a classroom setting for thirty minutes during scheduled free time play. During this time, observers would have been assessing student’s ability to share with others, expression of feelings, and interaction with peers. After observation, students would have received an intervention based on the observed area that requires the most attention. Intervention strategies that would have been implemented are large group teaching, peer modeling, reinforcement system, and small group instruction.
