In this social story, students learn about self regulation through flexible thinking and the power of math to help us make decisions!
This is a great way to incorporate social emotional learning into your math class. It will also help students to think about how their choices, and an understanding of what's in their control, can help them get what they want and avoid consequences.
I did this lesson with my students and we haven't had any problems transitioning to recess since! They were also VERY invested is solving how much recess time they could gain by showing expected behaviors.
This lesson could be incorporated into social thinking, math, or literacy!
