Learning “rules” of typical social situations.
Each card presents a basic social concept that children need to learn to behave appropriately in community settings particularly when peers are present. The stories help children pay attention to important social cues, to understand the perspective of others, and to respond appropriately in social situations. This set of 35 cards includes topics like greeting a friend, paying attention, riding safely in a car, waiting your turn at a playground, asking for help, and many more. Each story is followed by bulleted highlights and a set of interactive questions to stimulate discussion. The photographs on each card were selected to provide children with a visual understanding of the social challenges in the community. Ages 5-12
