WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO is a social skills activity presenting everyday situations found at school, at home, and in the community.
LIFELINES (Four sets of lifelines on one page)
ASK A FRIEND: The student may ask another student in the group or the SLP/teacher for assistance on the question.
JUMP A QUESTION: The student may choose to skip over one of the questions asked.
SECOND CHANCE: If the student answers incorrectly, he/she may give a “second” answer.
GAME BOARDS and STARS
•Each board features the amounts 100 through 1000 allowing the students to track the number of points earned as they answer questions correctly
•The stars are given to students to “cover” the point values on their boards when questions are answered correctly
SOCIAL SKILLS CARDS
•SET A: 30 cards with brief social situations and 5 questions the students will answer about the situation
•SET B: 60 cards where the student will read and/or listen to the social situation and decide which of the 4 choices would be the best solution in that situation.
PREPARING AND HOW TO PLAY:
•Print all pages on cardstock and laminate
•Cut apart the “Star” pieces
•Each student will get a game board and 3 lifelines to use whenever they would like throughout the game
•Student or SLP/Teacher will choose a card and read/listen to the social situation.
•If the student is unsure of an answer, he/she may use one of the 3 “lifelines”.
•When the student answers all questions or chooses the correct answer on a card, the SLP/teacher will give him/her a STAR to cover a point value (100, 200, 300, etc.)
•The first student to reach 1000 points is a SUPERHERO!!!
