Social Story Saturday #5-- BONUS FREEBIE!!

Okay this social story is one of those that reminds me of the saying "it's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it". Six years ago, when I was fresh out of college, I would have never imagined having to write a story about keeping your hands out of your pants. However, this is a social story that has been useful several times in my classroom especially with my 3rd and 4th grade boys.

Even if you don't need it in your classroom, you may want to read it for a laugh!


Hands in Pants Social Story

Oh man,thank you! Last year was my first year with my ASD classroom and I thought since I was in elementary I would avoid these behaviors. Boy, was I wrong!

Kara said...

I've written a very similar social story in the past! I think I need one now about the importance of not touching women's (teachers', strangers'...) breasts. Seriously. The things you don't learn in teacher training!!

Haha! I am so glad to have some readers that are understanding of the need for this story! Kara, I had a colleague last year who had the same issue with a boy groping female staff.
