Description: The first of two volumes, Life Skill Stories contains 60 stories that focus on typical teenage experiences and the skills we all need to navigate life. The characters in the stories are teenagers, their friends, and family members. Some stories are humorous, some are mysterious, and others touch on the drama of daily life as a teenager. Each story ties directly to a number of specific life skills, for example, sizing recipes or finding the best price when shopping. Along with specific skills, the stories also support six important general life skill areas. Stories 1-10 focus on organization; stories 11-20 focus on logic; stories 21-30 focus on responsibility; stories 31-40 focus on conscientiousness; stories 41-50 focus on flexibility; and stories 51-60 focus on observation. A free supplemental PDF provides discussion questions for both volumes.
