Social skills allow us to communicate and problem solve. For students with special needs and more specifically, our friends with Autism, we need to teach them these skills.
Knowing how to act in school is an important social skill. Certain inappropriate behaviors are not tolerated and students need to be able to distinguish appropriate from inappropriate behaviors.
Whole Body Listening - A sorting mat for students to learn how to use their whole body to focus while listening.
You can use this in two ways:
1. Give each student a blank mat and set of sorting cards. One by one, sort the cards and glue them to the sorting mat. This works great during whole group instruction.
2. Print the sorting mat and cards on cardstock and laminate. Use Velcro and create an interactive page for students to use and reuse. This works great for individual instruction or a quick social skills reminder lesson (as shown in preview).
