Following directions is an important life skill. Directions serve many purposes and there may be significant consequences for failure to follow directions. Many of our students are learning and developing these skills, but may need more explicit reminders and follow through of consequences to further understand why following all directions is important.
This packet contains a task manager section. The task manager section is a series of questions that are designed to give a student something non-threatening and centering to focus on. Often students may be too angry to comply with working on a behavior packet, but may refocus once provided with a non-consequence tasks to complete.
The next section of the behavior packet contains three social stories with situations involving the consequences of not following directions. Students will read the stories and answer some questions.
The final part of the behavior packet is the responsibility portion. Here is where students will own their choices, create a plan-including an apology. It is expected that students will deliver their plan and apology to the appropriate person as needed.
This packet is titled level 1-which is designed for our low readers. Level 2 and level 3 are more complex than level 1.
