PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Being a good listener is such an important skill, yet so difficult to teach. This is a simple social story that first, reminds students how important it is to be a good listener, and second, some simple steps for students to follow to help them become better listeners. There are 2 versions of this story included to reach more learning levels in your class. The activities are perfect accompaniments to this unit and helps students make more personal connections to the content.

★★★Updated and expanded August 2016 thanks to some helpful feedback.

*****************************************************************************
Teaching students appropriate behavior and response/reactions to various situations is a challenge we face as special education teachers. This is why I feel it is so critical to teach these skills in a safe, non-stressful situation, NOT while the behavior is occurring. If you target and protect instructional time to teach these social skills, you are more likely to see them transfer to naturally occurring settings. I know there never seems to be enough time to teach what you need to in a school day, but you will not be sorry if you put time aside every day to work on building better social skills in a thoughtful and structured manner. My hope is that these social stories and related activities will make that task a little easier for you.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.
