Do you use social skills stories in your classroom? One of my favorite things about teaching is sharing books and stories with my students. Even better if students can learn about important topics while they enjoy the stories and characters!
Bunny And Bear Social Skills Stories
This post focuses on our series of books called Bunny and Bear. Bunny and Bear books are social stories which teach essential social skills to young children. My own students immediately fell in love with these characters and loved talking, writing and drawing about them! Each book comes with about 20 writing activities to explore and solidify the taught concepts. Perfect!
The stories all have the same two characters, Bunny and Bear. Bunny and Bear explore topics such as personal space, how to calm down, and how to stop germs from spreading. Each story is told using simple dialogue written inside of a speech bubble, making the stories very engaging for students.
Lesson Plans For Social Skills Stories
Each story also includes a full week of printable activities to help explore the stories through writing, drawing and discussion. Example activities include: discussion cards, vocabulary cards, letter writing, mini-books, comprehension close reading, paper puppets, partner plays, letter writing, and more! You can see a sample of the full week plan below (and it might take two weeks if you are doing all the activities included!)
