Strategies For Handling Problems | Social Skills Story and Activities | Differentiated For K-5th Grade

  • $3.99

Do you have students who struggle to stay calm when they have a problem, even a small one? Do they get very upset and have trouble solving the problem using appropriate behavior?

I created these activities to help children who struggle with handling problems in a calm, effective way.

Teach these calming and problem solving strategies and review frequently when the student is not experiencing a problem. The student will be more likely to be able to access these strategies, once they have become very familiar with them.  

EDITABLE CARDS are provided so that you can make your own strategy cards to individualize to your students needs. 

Help students understand which strategies may be most helpful depending on the problem at hand.

The social story will help children understand what they should do in a problem situation.

The color story is great for the classroom and the black and white story is great to print it out and send it home. Or have your student follow along and color in the pictures while you read.
