Children may not understand the effect unkind words have on others. They may not realize how words can isolate them from their friends. Read this story with your students---use a copy of the LITTLE BOOK, or the BIGGER BOOK, or use the POWER POINT version to read to the whole class. Give children copies of the books to take home. Staple the two pages of the black & white version of the bigger book to make a coloring book!
Social stories are an entertaining format that children can relate to. These stories state the problem, why it's a problem, and what to do about it.
Print and fold this Little Book as many times as you like (Folding instructions included). Send a copy home so parents can read it with their child and reinforce your efforts in school.
If a copy is damaged, print another. Collect an assortment of these little social story books and allow your students to read the books whenever they like.
INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
SOCIAL STORY - Kind Words
This book features a child who learns that angry words hurt friends. People stay away from children who use angry words. Friends use kind words.
> This 8 page story comes in two sizes. 1. "Little Book" (3 ½ x 4¼ inches when folded) with color pictures to support the text. NOTE: Folding instructions included. 2. "Bigger Books" (8½ x 5½ inches when folded). Both size books come in BOTH boy and girl versions. The Bigger Books come in both color and black & white versions.
AND, both boy and girl versions come in 9 slide POWER POINT versions. (You could also print the power point slides to make full page size books!)
Two posters (print on 8 ½ x 11 paper). These are in color and match the illustrations in the book. The black and white versions can be used as coloring sheets.
> Reward Charts
The Ribbon charts can be used to reward students when they use kind words. Or, it can be used as a response-cost intervention to break the habit of using angry words. Either way, there are two charts (one for a girl, one for a boy) and INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED.
> Paper Ribbons
Use these as desk decorations, locker (or coat cubby) decorations; attach a pin and have children wear a ribbon. I'm sure you will find many other uses… It's just another way to remind students to use Kind Words!
As usual, help is included - How to Fold, How to Print, FAQ, and two pages of instructions for using the Reward Charts.
