A new baby is an exciting time for kids and teachers! However, all the changes that accompany a maternity leave can be overwhelming for some kids. This social story addresses the changes that may happen during a teachers maternity leave: saying goodbye to their teacher, meeting a new teacher, and understanding that their teacher needs to stay home and take care of the new baby.
A social story is an awesome way to provide a visual or written guide for kids of all ages and abilities. Social stories can address various social interactions, skills, routines. The goal of a social story is to provide information to help inform kids in a simple and fun way!
When I work with my students, I find that having a visual example of what is going to happen, or how to solve a problem, helps to lower anxiety and increase fun.
