Do you have students who struggle with remaining on task and following along in class? Don’t pay attention or misunderstand the teacher’s directions? This product will help redirect these students by teaching them to listen and be more observant of their surroundings. The Power Card Strategy is a visually based strategy used to connect an appropriate behavior or social skill to a child’s special interest (hero, cartoon character, role model). While the research has been done with children with Autism, this strategy can be used with any child who is struggling behaviorally. The idea is to have the child associate the desired behavior with their special interest rather than coming from the adult.
The desired goal behavior in this social story is remaining on task and following along with the rest of the class. This story will help students who often miss or misunderstand the teacher’s directions or simply move at a slow pace. Students will learn that even when they do not hear or do not understand the teacher, they can look around and observe what their classmates are doing and then engage in that same task and expected behavior.
This particular resource is centered around The Super Focus Team and their adventures of being heroes. It includes the following components:
1. The Power Card Story (social story that includes 8 half sheet pages when printed):
A short story is included that describes how members of The Super Focus Team solve the problem and become the heroes by listening and always paying close attention to their surroundings. Ideally, the student should read the story individually or with an adult each day as a preventative approach. Another time to review the story would be following the unwanted behavior—when the student is not remaining on task and following along.
2. The Power Card:
The power card is a small card with pictures that provides a recap of the strategies learned in the story. Following the initial reading of the story, the student is given the power card to keep. This card serves as a way to generalize the skill to new settings. Five versions of boy and girl power cards are included. The card should be available for the student to refer to throughout the day.
BONUS: Specific steps and information are provided so that you can write your own power card story!
