My Students

I have a small group of students that travel in and out of my classroom. They are all eager to participate with their peers, but lack social skills.

The one thing y students have in common is they all love to read.

My classroom lacks books on emotions, appropriate behaviors, and coping skills. Social stories can help prevent meltdowns as students begin to learn what is expected of them. They also show how to appropriately respond to specific situations that they could experience in their everyday life.

My Project

I am asking for books, activity teaching guides and a book with a CD. The materials I have selected will help students in my classroom develop appropriate behaviors. Books provide a fun visual way to learn coping and social skills. They are an easy and quick way to help students learn. Books have written and visual cues that help a student with a social situation or event by preparing for and teaching appropriate behaviors.

The books I am requesting can show how to appropriately respond to specific situations or events that they could experience in their everyday life The twenty-one books I have selected deal with saying sorry, anger, sharing, anxiety, listening, always having to be first, bullying, lying, stealing, respecting personal space, impulsiveness, making good choices, and many more behaviors.
