Establishing a routine for getting ready for school is very beneficial, particularly for children with language delays. This book and visuals help establish this routine. Use as many or as few of the pages/pictures as you require. I hope you find it as helpful as I have.
TO MAKE: Print off on cardstock for extra durability. Cut the social story pages along to dotted line and then laminate. Hole punch and hold story together with O-rings. For the visuals cut out and laminate.
Social story with 10 pages (use the pages that best suit your students’ needs)
* One story with lockers and a boy
* One story with lockers and a girl
* One story with hooks and a girl
* One story with hooks and a boy
Small visuals (same as the social story)
* One set with lockers and a boy
* One set with lockers and a girl
* One set with hooks and a girl
* One set with hooks and a boy
TO USE: These can be used in a variety of ways. The social story can be read during the day to help with establishing the routine. It can also be read while they are completing the routine and then read backwards when they are ready to go home.
The small visuals can be put together as a small individual book put on strip of paper to show the steps of getting ready to go to school. As well, you can use them to show the routine of going home by reversing the order.
