PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Perseverance Social Story is a 15 page story addresses the need for students to keep trying and do their best. I wrote and used this story on perseverance before test time, and it really helped students visualize what I was saying when I said, "I want you to do your best and not give up." This social story on perseverance addresses perseverance in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on what it means to persevere. This repetition encourages internalization of perseverance. Finally, the perseverance activities allow for an opportunity to assess how well the student understands and can recall the expectations.

There is a second story as well, using BW clip art that is great for older students. Finally, there are 2 activities to help your students make personal and meaningful connections to this concept.

See Preview for a more detailed 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.
