This worksheet was designed for students who struggle with social pragmatic skills. This worksheet should be used along with the Social Pragmatic Language Skills Parent Questionnaire. Students should complete this activity after they have become familiar with the social skills categories (rules of conversation, tone of voice, non-verbal language, common courtesies, friendship) and have reflected on their own social skills. This writing activity is a great way to get students working together as a group and forces them to compromise in order for the story to come together. This activity is not intended for individual completion, but as a group project. Students will need assistance with the sequence and flow of the writing.
After completion, you can copy illustrations and bind students' writing to make a book. Students enjoy inviting parents to a "book signing" where they autograph copies of their book and share their stories with their parents and other classmates.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me and I can share examples of the finished product with you. Students love this activity and even though it's A LOT of work to pull off, trust me it will be worth it!
