WHAT ARE SOCIAL STORIES?
Social stories are simple stories that describe common situations that occur frequently in the classroom. They describe the situation, possible feelings that may occur, self-talk strategies that can be helpful, and the desired outcomes. These stories are especially helpful for younger students or students with autism or behavioural issues.
WHY ARE SOCIAL STORIES HELPFUL?
★ Social stories help clarify positive and expected social behaviours regarding routines, directions and peer interaction
★ Social stories reinforce shared emotions we all have, and how to cope with them in positive ways
★ Social stories teach and practice self-talk as a way to manage big emotions and reactions
★ Social stories help students cope with change, transitions, conflict and other distressing events
★ Social stories help students with behavioural needs gain skills in recognizing social cues and build meaningful friendships
ACTIVITIES IN EACH STORY PACK
Each story topic has a one-week suggested dayplan (15 pages of activities, stories, posters and teacher scripts) to introduce and reinforce concepts. The activities repeat for each story so students are familiar with the formats and can focus on the skill being taught.
They include descriptive, perspective, directive and affirmative sentences, as well as visual cues. Although a suggested week plan is included, activities can be completed in any order, and not all of them must be done. You can pick and choose depending on your students’ needs.
★ a simple, two-page teacher script to read aloud to students as an introduction to the topic (questions embedded to guide conversation)
★ one or more reference posters with simple sentences and visual representation
★ Social story strips for student reference (first person)

★ Personal Connection Comic: Students fill in the comic and draw/write about their own connections to the topic, including how the might feel and what kind of self-talk they could use in that situation (emotions pictures for reference)
★ Partner Play: a 3-person play to read or perform with the class to reinforce concepts
★ Paper characters; cut out and assemble the characters from the story - they stand up on their own, and can be used to act out the story
