Description

Engaging social skills task cards and writing prompts to help middle and high school students build social-emotional skills for success! The 100+ cards are organized into five different sets that target different social skills: Basic Interactions, Conversations, Empathy, Friendships & Relationships, and Conflict Resolution Skills.

These cards are great for ALL students but especially learning with social challenges and needs. Use these task cards to allow students to discuss a variety of social situations and brainstorm for the best solutions in different scenarios. This includes students with autism, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, and more.

Skills Targeted:

  • Basic Interactions - greetings, listening, being polite, helping others, personal space, giving compliments

  • Conversations - showing you are interested, listening, answering questions, taking turns, avoiding interrupting, staying on topic, paying attention to social cues

  • Empathy - facial expressions, body language, being sensitive to the needs of others, considering how others feel, perspective-taking, respectfully disagreeing

  • Friendships - being kind and thoughtful, giving space to friends, being dependable, giving support, dealing with disagreements, being happy for others, communicating with friends

  • Conflict Resolution - solving problems, considering possible solutions, understanding consequences, being honest, taking responsibility, apologizing, negotiation

Digital and Print Versions

A digital version is included in Google Drive to allow students to respond to cards on their own.

Integrate Social Skills AND Writing

Every task card has its own journal writing prompt page (both digital and printable). This allows students to respond orally and in writing to any prompt you want! It would be a great morning meeting activity or way to start groups by giving kids read the card, respond, and then discuss as a group.

How to Use the Task Cards

  • Read 1-2 cards per day in a small guided group. Discuss and build skills together.
  • Add cards to a ring. Read and discuss a few cards whenever you have extra time (before a break) to integrate social skills.
  • Use during a social skills group with middle and high school students.
  • Use during advisory period. Have students discuss and act our scenarios.
  • Provide prompt pages for early finishers, integrating social skills into any content that you teach.

A template is also included so that you (or your students) can make individualized social skills task cards for specific needs. This can be a fun activity all on its own!
