Social Story - Moving to Reception Class

Social Story - Moving to Reception Class

This is a social story I wrote for a nursery child to read over the summer holidays, to familiarise themselves with their new environment. You can amend it to your child / environment / issues / needs. The circles at the top are for the hole punch. Laminate the story back to back and hole punch and tie the top. This can then be given to the child and hung up in the environment.
