⭐️ Who Benefits from this Product ⭐️

If you are a teacher who is working in an Autism Unit with Special Education students you will love this activity since it is PRINT AND GO! Target social skills and behavior for a specific student or use class-wide to enhance your classroom culture.

If you are a teacher in a secondary classroom and strive to keep materials age appropriate, then you will love this activity! It is not baby-ish yet it addresses the needs of students who are still working on social skills.

If you are a teacher who loves to keep things themed, updated and interesting, then this printable is for you. It is timeless and engaging… plus there is an entire product line you can use in your classroom to keep everything consistent. Do this one-week activity and then come back to Noodle Nook for more social stories that meet your student’s needs.
