Screaming is a form of communication. Children who scream when upset seldom think of how their screams impact others. Without effective verbal skills, screaming serves their needs. This Little Book is a story that kids can relate to. It even comes in kid size! It can be a visual reminder for the child to try and talk through their problem. Once the child is calm, try reading him this story.
Hang the posters. Use the PUNCH CARDS to reinforce the child when s/he uses language instead of behaviors to communicate needs. Use the visual BREAK CARD to teach children to take some time to try and feel better.
Social stories are an entertaining format. Children can relate to social stories. These stories state the problem, why it's a problem, and what to do about it.
Print and fold these books 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.
You can even LAMINATE the books so they will survive even the most challenging students (see the FAQ included for hints on how to do this.)
