This simple social story reminds students about the need to work independently. It teaches students to get started right away on their work. It is explained that you do not need to know everything to get started on your work. Teachers have other students to help and it is expected that you try 3 times and read the directions to figure out the problem yourself. Written for 5th grade but as it is in power point, it can be easily modified. Great for students on the autism spectrum.
