Transition booklet and social story SEN

Transition booklet and social story SEN

Download includes three documents.1. Transition booklet: designed to be conducted with the student with support. It introduces the student, who their teachers will be and what will be the same and different in the upcoming year. (spaces to insert pictures or for the child to draw themselves and their new teacher)I'd suggest that they are done in school to gain context but be taken home to support students over the holidays. 2. Same and different pictures: a page of pictures which students can sort into same and different for the upcoming year. Would be great as a class circle time to explain to the students and for them to ask questions to ease anxiety. They can also be used as a cut and stick exercise for page three of the transition booklet. (e.g. friends, classroom, teacher, lunch time, play time, learning, playground etc)3. Back to school social story: A social story to ease the transition from the holidays to school in September.
