Students put a variety of social and language skills to use in this problem solving set with real photos! Skills include interpreting nonverbal cues, perspective taking, cause-effect, making predictions, explaining problems and justifying solutions, figuring out the size of the problem, understanding idioms in context and figuring out what to say in each situation. Just print and go!
Also included: A STRATEGY TOOLKIT
of page sized posters to refer to when discussing the problems. These also make an amazingly functional bulletin board display that reminds students to use their strategies!
The situations work for middle to high school students:
~ homework problems (dealing with frustration and asking for help)
~ a hard class (dealing with frustration and asking for help)
~ gossiping (dealing with peers)
~ bullying (dealing with peers)
Each problem has a strategy toolbox poster to guide discussion!
What are buyers saying?
+ Love this comprehensive resource! Love the different activities and the figurative language
+ This will be sooooooooo good, for my high school students with Autism!!
+ Great resource-has so much in it. The thought bubble is a great exercise and the problem solving section offers several ways to work on that skill. Love how figurative language is also worked in.
+ This is perfect for my 7th-12 grade students. I love the way that figurative language is included, as well as explaining what happened. This will be great for mixed groups, and will be nice for the students with social needs to hear the responses of students who do well in social language.
