Social Stories are beneficial for helping children with an autism spectrum disorder learn how to deal with a particular challenge. This packet includes the following:
- A full-size book that can be read to the entire class. This is helpful if you are doing a unit for the whole class to work on how to act when you win or lose.
- A half-sized book that can be laminated and stored either in a desk or in the classroom library.
- A one-page copy of the story to put in a page protector to be stored in a 3 ring binder. This is convenient for storing other stories.
- A student book version where the children can color black and white pictures from the story. Normally I have a student book with blank pages for the children to draw, but this story is hard for children to draw pictures.
This is a good activity to do at the beginning of the school year when teaching children to say the Pledge of Allegiance.
