Included in the Incredible Years curriculum are a series of laminated, colored cue cards (or black line drawings) that show pictures of the major social and emotional concepts of the program (for example, pictures of Wallys 7 problem-solving steps, Molly sharing and helping, Tinys 5 angermanagement steps, Dina Dinosaurs rules for the classroom, and a variety of solutions to problems). The cue card that represents the new skill being taught in a particular lesson is shown by the teacher during circle time to provide a visual reminder of the skill. These cards may also be posted on the board or classroom walls in strategic areas so children can see them and teachers can refer to them during the day. For example, the sharing cue card may be put in the house area or the trading cue card in the block area and so forth.

designed to help students learn the specific social, emotional skill as well as to enhance
pre-reading, reading, pre-writing or writing skills. Creative art supplies can be added to
