Updated to include both color and B/W version for easier printing.
A catchy little social story inspired by a familiar “pants” song to encourage students of all ages to keep their hands out of their pants at school. 9 pages are included. Page six is included to teach students the appropriate time to touch themselves is in a private setting and not at school. This page could be easily removed for younger students if it is not appropriate. I would also be glad to customize the story if you teach an alternate replacement. Although I do not usually write social stories in a negative format, I think you will find the rhythm of this story will stick with students and help them to self-talk with appropriate reminders. This product can be viewed on an interactive white board or desktop computer. It can also be printed and made into a book.
