Speech Paths


So many of my elementary students struggle with social inference skills. These fun, interactive activities help students make "smart guesses" and improve their ability to navigate the social world.

Students learn to focus on 5 types of social context clues:

► People
► Place
► Facial Expressions
► Body Language
► Tone of Voice

Students are presented with social scenarios (pictures and paragraph) and determine the type of social context clues. These scenarios are provided in B/W and color no-print that can be viewed on a digital device. There are 10 stories included in the packet.

Students enter the clues into individual Social Context Detective Notebooks which can be taken home for parent discussion. To encourage completion of additional notebooks (and engage in more skill practice!) a motivational Detective Badge Award chart is included!

I encourage you to take a look at the preview! You can also see how I am using this resource in my speech room by visiting my blog here: Speech Paths
