This Task Cards Sampler is a pack of 10 fun task cards that highlight situations that kids can discuss and identify how big each problem is. A "How Big is My Problem?" scale is also included, rating problems from 0 (a glitch) to 5 (an emergency). The cards are organized into five different sets that target different locations and situations: With friends, At home, In the classroom, At recess and lunch, and In the hallways and specials.

These cards are great for students with social difficulties and those who are rigid and might get "stuck" in their way of thinking. A major difficulty for these children is feeling that every problem is a huge massive problem, regardless of what it is. Use these task cards to allow students to discuss a variety of social situations and brainstorm how big each problem is, what the problem really means, and ways to solve each problem. This includes students with autism, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, and more.

How to Use the Task Cards
The task cards can be used in guided small groups, as part of class discussions, or in partner discussion before sharing out with the larger group or class. Regular education teachers, special education teachers, and other support professionals could all benefit from using these task cards with their students.
