Do you have a student that is having a hard time standing/walking in line? Or do you have a young class that you are trying to teach this skill to and want another tool to help? This story is written with cartoon characters to represent the students in your class. It is formatted in PowerPoint so that you are able to customize each page so that the story uses the names and phrases appropriate for your student or class. The story shows the student behaving appropriately, and explains why it is important to behave this way. You can print and use as a traditional paper book, or use it as a PowerPoint slide show.
This story can be personalized to teach appropriate behavior. The concept of a Social StoryTM was developed by Carol Grey to teach the correct behavior to children with Autism. This approach to teaching skills can be very effective to teach skills to young children with or without Autism. The story covers topics about Line leader, Not touching walls, Quiet as we walk, Hands down by side, Standing still and consequences such as bothering other children, and making the teacher proud when he does the right thing.
Children will love to see a story where they are on every page. You are able to read the story repeatedly so that the correct behavior becomes a natural response. The child is able to follow the story like a script and this helps them remember how to act appropriately.
