This is a quick reference for writing a basic social story. There are other types of sentences that can be used but this will get you started.<br />
What is a social story?<br />
A social story is a short story written in a specific style and describes what happens in a specific social situation. It describes a certain situation, event or activity and includes specific information over what to expect. It can describe what people do, why they do it and what are the common responses.<br />
Social stories can:<br />
Reduce anxiety<br />
Change behaviour from inappropriate to appropriate<br />
Help prepare for a new experience<br />
Affirmation – so a child can understand and recognise his or her own appropriate skills or behaviour<br />
To help prevent extreme reactions due to lack of social understanding<br />
To understand how others might respond in a situation<br />
To develop self care such as teeth brushing, keeping clean, not eating off the floor,<br />
To cope with change of routine<br />
To learn how to deal with strong emotions<br />
It is important to set the focus of the story so you are clear what you want to change or what you want the story to achieve. <br />
This is a spelling challenge booklet that I created to use with my SEN groups and KS1 children. It helps children work through learning the first 100 HFW for spelling and can be used as part of a PT/probes session or as a aid to learning for a whole class or group. The children love doing it and we have seen great results. I have another one for the next 200 HFW if people think it would be useful.
This is a sample of a social story created to help a child in our school to remember to only ask once for things. The pictures and the text can all be edited to bring more meaning to the child you are writing it with.
<p>A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.</p>
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
To say THANK YOU to all my TES friends and followers I've created a bunch of $2.00 packets! This one centers on the reading skill of sequencing. This 20+ page packet contains all sorts of graphic organizers aimed at helping your primary students master sequencing the events in a story! I hope you enjoy these graphic organizers as much as my students do. Sequencing is an important skill so these are specifically designed to help ensure mastery of that concept.
