More details

Do you have students who get really upset when they make even the smallest mistake?

Do you have students who try so hard to avoid making mistakes that they get incredibly anxious and preoccupied with doing something "right?"

Do you have students who struggle to understand (or admit) when they have made a mistake that requires an apology?

A SOCIAL STORY may be just the thing to help.

Social stories use clear, concise language to break down information into small, explicit steps that help children understand what they should or should not do in a given situation.

SOCIAL STORIES are a great way to teach important skills to children who are struggling to understand a particular social concept such as handling MISTAKES.

Social Story Skill Builders combine a social story and one or more follow up activities and/or visual supports. These activities and visual supports will help your students build the skills they need, in order to use the information presented in the social story more successfully.

This social story will help children who have a difficult time handling their MISTAKES. The story breaks down various types of mistakes and gives suggestions for how to handle each of them. The story discusses how some mistakes need to be FIXED, some require an APOLOGY and others just need to be LET GO.

The skill building activities help children to understand when, why and how to give someone an apology or when to let something go and move on.

Inspirational quote posters will be wonderful reminders to your students that making mistakes is a necessary part of life and that we all make mistakes.
