This social story focuses on a problem many young children face-hitting. It describes the consequences of hitting and then offers a series of things to do when frustrated or upset instead of hitting. It ends by encouraging students to join others in quitting hitting.
So check your clocks. It is time! Kids everywhere are committing.“We will keep our hands to ourselves because we are quitting hitting.”
Color and black/white versions included. Four activity sheets are also included to reinforce the social skills taught.
