These activities are designed to be used with younger students or students with Special Needs, to explicitly teach them how to ask a question. Explicitly teaching this skill may eliminate "melt downs" from students who are struggling to wait their turn or students interrupting teaching. These are a great addition to use with explicit teaching of "is this a now or a later problem?".
Social stories are a fantastic way to teach appropriate behaviours to your whole class and, because these are visual, are perfect to use with students who have learning needs such as Autism.
This file contains:
-"How to Ask Questions" steps Poster in colour (A4) two variations
-"Asking Questions" book in colour (A4)
-"Asking Questions" book in black & white (A4)
- extra "Asking Questions" book in colour (this version uses the word 'toilet' rather than 'bathroom' when giving an example of how to ask questions)
Once you have purchased this, if you would like any variations made please email me (email in credits) and I will change any wording and send you the new copy.
How to Print:
To make the booklet you can either print and staple or I find it best to print then photocopy using the 'booklet' feature on your photocopier. I print the booklet in A3 to use with the class and make the smaller A4 booklets to send home.
Ideas for how to use:
When introducing these steps, read the book with your class & role play how to use the steps. After students are beginning to use the steps display the poster in the classroom as a reminder. I also find it useful to send the book home with students who are having the most troubles learning the new skill.
