SOCIAL SKILLS: Rules And Laws~ Why We Have Them And Follow Them
~I had a student who believed there should be no rules! Yikes! As you can imagine, this caused him a lot of difficulties in school. I wrote these activities to help him understand the different kinds of rules we have and why they are so important. I found it helpful and the students enjoyed the activities. I hope yours will too!
