I created this product for my students with social language impairments who struggle with negative thoughts. This chronic mindset often impacts their social relationships and makes it difficult to see positive things in their day.
The teaching cards (10) introduce information and strategies that are part of a cognitive behavioral approach to changing one’s outlook from “gloom and doom” to a sunnier one. Cut them apart, laminate and keep them on a ring for review.
Each TV page (18) has a social scenario and questions to determine how to handle each one in a positive way, “changing the channel” to a brighter outlook. There are cards included for your students to make their own strategy sets and an action plan template for a positive outlook!
This activity would pair nicely when talking about the social language concepts of the size of a problem or with the
Zones of Regulation ® materials (not included).
This low ink, black and white packet is appropriate for older elementary through early high school students, or students functioning at this cognitive level. It would be perfect for social skills groups, counseling groups or
with PBIS lessons in general education and special education classrooms.
