PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you have students who cannot stand to wait, even a short time?

Do you have students who when you say "in a minute" watch the clock until 60 seconds has gone by?

These 2 social stories address what it means when someone says "Just a minute." It helps students understand they may have to wait more than 60 seconds, but it will not be a terrible long time either.

The sorting activity helps the teacher assess if students seem to understand what 60 seconds is by sorting pictures into 2 groups: those that take about a minute and those that will take much longer.

See preview for a closer look at the contents.

Teaching students appropriate behavior and response/reactions to various situations is a challenge we face as special education teachers. This is why I feel it is so critical to teach these skills in a safe, non-stressful situation, NOT while the behavior is occurring. If you target and protect instructional time to teach these social skills, you are more likely to see them transfer to naturally occurring settings. I know there never seems to be enough time to teach what you need to in a school day, but you will not be sorry if you put time aside every day to work on building better social skills in a thoughtful and structured manner. My hope is that these social stories and related activities will make that task a little easier for you.
