PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perspective taking can be a challenge for many of our students. These task cards give opportunities to take different perspectives and determine if something good can come from a bad event. This can help a student judge the size of a problem and reduce the anxiety associated with it. Students often focus on the negative aspect of a problem. Higher level thinking allows us to take a more positive perspective. I used them with my 3rd and 4th graders who are part of a social skills group. The inability to think flexibly was very apparent in this group. I was worried that I might have created something too difficult for the age range so I brought them out for my articulation students working on sounds in conversational speech. The 3rd graders through 5th graders were able to do them with very little prompting. I concluded that these cards were very telling about a deficit area with perspective taking.
The cards are best printed on card stock. There are a total of 32 cards 4 1/4 in by 3 3/4 in. There are 11 pages with a set of 3 cards on each. The Bad Thing card is meant to stay attached to the Good Thing card in the middle. The Good Thing card can be folded back and glued to the back side of the Bad Thing card to make a double sided card. Present the Bad Thing side first and ask if the student can think of any good things that can come from it. There may be more than one acceptable answer for each card. The Good Thing side is a suggested answer.
