Mohammed is a five-year-old in your kindergarten room. He enjoys being with other children, but often has a difficult time sharing materials at his table. He does not like to wait his turn at the drinking fountain or the slide outside. He tends to push and yell at other children in the class when he wants to get to these two things in particular as they seem to be his favorite. You would like to see this behavior diminish by helping Mohammed learn about turn taking in the classroom and on the playground. You decide to write a social story to him that you can read to him individually and even to a small group.
Part 1: Write a Social Story based on the scenario that you can read to Mohammed. You will put this into a form of a story. You should add clip art or pictures.
Part 2: After the story, explain how doing this assignment can help you become a better educator. How does your knowledge of social narratives help you improve as a professional educator?
Then, give three scenarios explaining how you could use social narratives in a classroom setting with a child with special needs and typically developing children and why the social narratives may be helpful to all students. The two sections should be clearly marked and spell checked. The number of pages may vary as you may want to put each section of your story on separate pages so you can print them out as a book. Be sure to include part 2.
