Total Pages: 39
File Size: 4 MB



This social story contains material specifically designed for students with autism and special learning needs. There are 2 versions of the story, activity, and pledge card. This social story on being generous addresses what it looks like to be generous and why it is important in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. The activity is a perfect accompaniment to this unit and helps informally assess your students comprehension of the material. Finally, the pledge helps students make more personal connections to the content.

★★★Updated and expanded August 2016 thanks to some helpful feedback.

Teaching students appropriate behavior and response/reactions to various situations is a challenge we face as special education teachers. This is why I feel it is so critical to teach these skills in a safe, non-stressful situation, NOT while the behavior is occurring. If you target and protect instructional time to teach these social skills, you are more likely to see them transfer to naturally occurring settings. I know there never seems to be enough time to teach what you need to in a school day, but you will not be sorry if you put time aside every day to work on building better social skills in a thoughtful and structured manner. My hope is that these social stories and related activities will make that task a little easier for you.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.
