FREE Editable Social Story to Ease Transitions - Going to Music
Do you need a way to ease transitions for your students with special needs? Going to Music, A Social Story for Successful Mainstreaming can help many struggling students anticipate social situations and respond appropriately. "Going to Music" depicts a typical music classroom setting and models appropriate responses to help teach students how to respond and feel more comfortable.
Friendly Reminder Songs are another simple but very effective way to help create a positive classroom climate.
Typically, social stories are individualized for each student. This lesson was created in PowerPoint and it is 100% editable. You may change the rules & procedures to match your classroom. Consider taking pictures of your room and inserting them into the story. You may want to add photos of the teacher, the student, the paraprofessional, the classroom, etc. Change up the text to fit the needs of your particular classroom or use the story as is with clipart images.
The story may be printed and bound to create a paper book or it may be read directly from a digital device such as an ipad, chromebook, etc. Social stories should be read immediately prior to music class in order to help students prepare for the transition. Aides, paraprofessionals, or teachers may want to use this template to create additional social stories for Art and PE classes as well.
I hope this social story will benefit your students at your school. It has proven very useful at our school.
