Readers will find support for teachers, counselors, and supervisors, including a ready-to-use PowerPoint presentation for preservice and in-service training. The CD-ROM includes all reproducible forms, surveys, handouts, and letters to parents and caregivers found in the book. (Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included.)

Know and Follow Rules
A child who isn't following the rules is a child who's always in trouble. This book starts with simple reasons why we have rules: to help us stay safe, learn, be fair, and get along. Then it presents just four basic rules: "Listen," "Best Work," "Hands and Body to Myself," and "Please and Thank You." The focus throughout is on the positive sense of pride that comes with learning to follow rules. Includes questions and activities adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.

Words Are Not for Hurting/Las palabras no son para lastimar
With gentle encouragement, these books guide children to think before speaking, to choose words that are helpful instead of hurtful, and to say "I'm sorry" when hurtful words come out before kids can stop them.
Try and Stick With It
It's hard to try new things—for adults as well as children. It's even harder to stay the course when something is more difficult than we thought it would be, or when things don't work out the way we hoped. Yet flexibility and perseverance are essential to success in all areas of life, at all ages and stages. This book introduces children to the benefits of trying something new and the basics of stick-to-it-iveness. Includes suggestions adults can use to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught.
