Social stories are written to share meaningful and accurate information to define, describe and explain accurate information in a meaningful way to enhance the students social understanding.
Social stories are great for increasing a students understanding of socially appropriate behaviours and interactions.
This social story explores the concept of waiting. Being able to wait is a pro-social behaviour which is a fundamental life skill. Learning to wait enables the individual to cultivate and maintain friendships. This social story lays the foundation of understanding of this concept and includes practical examples that the student can relate to.
Visual supports are included to enhance the students understanding of the written word.
To supplement this social story remember that you can support your students or child to learn to share by giving them plenty of time and opportunities to practice. Praise and encouragement for good sharing will reinforce this concept.
The last page includes some reflective questions as an extension activity after reading through the social story.
