This Boom Cards™ deck contains 39 cards to target social skills for older students. This deck would allow you to engage conversations with the child using a New Year's Day theme. You can also assess the child's fluency, comparative thinking, and ability to formulate sentences.

It contains the following:
⭐ Card 1 - Menu Card
⭐ Card 2 - Card 3 - Guide Questions on "How did 'you' [student] celebrate New Year's Day?"

⭐ Card 4 - Summary for the New Year Celebration with a prompt guide on the side (When, Where, Who, What, Why)

⭐ Card 12 - Card 21 (10 Cards) - The student will pick which resolution s/he would like to work on and type why below.
