I use social stories like this in my kindergarten class on a regular basis. We read them together as a class, as things come up throughout the year. I also have them accessible at a separate table for children to read individually (on their own or with adult support). They are useful for children who are learning new things, adjusting to change, or facing difficult situations. I use them with English Language Learners as well as Special Needs children of all ages. The visuals are very helpful. I also send a copy home to the parents if a particular child is needing additional support with a topic.
