Sometimes we need to try harder to understand people who are different from us. These two social stories give the perspective of both the child who feels different, and the child who wants to get to know him. The stories present a problem and a solution while giving us a look into the feelings of the children involved.
Children relate to Social Stories. They are a fun way to teach social skills.
Print and fold these Little 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. Create a LITTLE LIBRARY and allow your students to read the books whenever they like.
Some teachers keep a box of LITTLE books in their time out area. While in Time Out, children are encouraged to find the LITTLE book that refers to their behavior, or something they might like to work on.
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.)
To make the BIGGER BOOKS, just fold the two page printout on standard 8 x11 paper in half. (NOTE: Print two sided.) There’s a color version and a black-line version that makes a wonderful coloring book.
Hang the POSTERS.
Use the DISCUSSION CARDS to guide deeper thought on the topic. (Power Point version is effective for large group instruction).
Set out some TABLE TOP SIGNS as little reminders.
