This fun activity focuses on using or losing words with BIG emotions, using play-doh mats as a reinforcer. When the students identify (or you "catch" them using) predictable and unpredictable behaviors in social scenarios (using or losing their words), they get a small ball of play-doh (any color) to squish on one of the pirate bubbles on the mat. The goal is to get all 8 pirate bubbles squished!
My product includes:
4 colorful pirate themed play-doh mats
1 information page to talk about the predictable and unpredictable
ways to use or lose our words with BIG emotions
12 social scenario cards to practice the skill
Directions for the activity and extension ideas are also included
This is perfect for preK-elementary students working on social
skills in speech, counseling or with whole class instruction!
