Description

Students put a variety of social and language skills to use in this problem solving set with photos! Each problem has a strategy toolbox poster to guide the discussion of the problem. Help your students apply skills to solve common school problems. There's also a link to an editable Google slides version to help with teletherapy or distance learning!

The situations work for upper elementary to middle/high students, depending on their skill levels:

  • 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.)

Skills include:

  1. interpreting nonverbal cues.
  2. perspective-taking.
  3. cause-effect.
  4. making predictions.
  5. explaining problems.
  6. justifying solutions.
  7. figuring out the size of the problem.
  8. understanding idioms in context.
  9. 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! These posters are also included in b/w versions for easier photocopying for individual student use.

+ "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."
