Details: Product Description Are you missing homework, or forgetting to do your chores? When he rushes home after an exhausting night of baseball, the last thing Braden wants to hear is Mom and Dad harping about everything he must finish on his to-do list. Of course, they wouldn't be on his case if he actually paid attention and did what he needed to do. From chores at home to questions on a quiz, Braden never checks his work for mistakes or to see if he missed anything. Is there a solution to his sloppiness? Read and follow along with Braden as award-winning author Bryan Smith highlights the importance of slowing down, being accurate, and double-checking one's work. Tips for parents, educators and counselors on how to teach kids to self-monitor are included at the back of the book. Review Every week I have students either rush through their assignments, or just not pay attention to details in their work. I strongly recommend How Did You Miss That? to any educator who wants to help students get past that kind of behavior. This book is a game-changer! --Diane Dahl, Gifted/Talented Specialist Self-monitoring is an important skill for kids who want to live successful and productive lives. It helps them identify what they want to accomplish, stay focused, double-check everything, and ask for assistance when they need it. How Did You Miss That? shows kids these steps in action and also provides tips for parents and educators. I highly recommend it. --Alice Berger, Berger's Book Review The Self-Monitoring Steps Are a Great Resource! This title does a wonderful job at helping kids explore the topic of how to self-monitor. Specifically, on how we sometimes forget to take the time to read instructions completely. The self-monitoring steps are a great resource that teachers could easily transfer over into a classroom setting and provide ongoing feedback. I would recommend adding visuals to this section because some of those concepts are still broad for our learners. District wide we use Zones of Regulation and we have created a book library for teachers to access trade books that correspond to the different zones. We linked this book with the yellow zone because sometimes the lack of self monitoring skills causes our students to have frustration about completing a task. (We also recommended this for our older grades 3-6). --Shannon Dobson, M-Ed, NBCT, Integrated Behavior and Education Support Team From the Inside Flap When he rushes home after an exhausting night of baseball, the last thing Braden wants to hear is Mom and Dad harping about everything he must finish on his to-do list.
