Recommendations for using this unit:
Instructional Social Story: Print and put in a sleeve protector. Keep your book in a three-ring binder. Print 4 or 6 slides per page then cut and staple to create mini books. Looks great in color or grayscale!
Classroom wall posters: post somewhere visible to remind your student even when you are not around or print 4/page, laminate, and use as a desk or locker card. Send home to provide continuity in strategies being taught. Print multiple times!!!
Award certificate: use to reward students for mastering this skill and to communicate growth with parents.
Coupon: hand these coupons out to all of the student’s teachers to encourage the student to use the skill in multiple settings. Catch your student telling the truth and give them an immediate extrinsic reward. This is great positive feedback for the student to bring home!
Think it Through Activity: use to help a student reflect on his/her choices and their consequences/rewards. Collect and use this data to write or update their IEP and Behavior Intervention Plan.
