The Booster Activities and lessons will further develop and refine all editions of the Kelso's Choice Curriculum concepts and philosophy, but do not constitute a stand-alone curriculum. This booster kit includes the Putting Kelso into Play DVD, It’s Your Choice card games, and New Teacher Guide and Lessons Plans. The program is comprised of two sections, grades K - 3 and grades 4 - 5. Grades K - 3 lessons are designed around Kelso the Frog, and offers nine options students can choose from to resolve conflicts. Grades 4 - 5 lessons are based around K.C.'s Choices which present eight verbal and nonverbal choices. Students are taught to use these choices and differentiate between problems they can handle on their own and those requiring adult intervention.
The New Teacher's’ Guide and Lesson Plans offers an outline for parents and guardians to learn the concepts and components of the Kelso's Choice Curriculum, provides grade appropriate reinforcement activities, and a CD for easy reproduction.
The It’s Your Choice card games are split into two grade specific sections - grades K-3 and grades 4-5. The K-3 section uses the Kelso’s Choice Wheel while the grades 4-5 uses K.C.’s Wheel. The card decks can be used to quiz students on how to use conflict management skills to solve common, age-appropriate scenarios and questions. The cards can be used either teacher to student or student to student.
The Booster Leader's Guide outlines activities designed to further reinforce the message that all children are strong enough and smart enough to solve small problems. This guide includes: Parents' Night Letter, Parents' Night Poster, Printable and Reproducible Kelso's and K.C.'s Wheels ,Kelso's and K.C.
