Hi everyone! It's Miss Thrifty SLP here with a quick craft for social skills. I recently shared a new tab for social skill resources on my blog as it's something I've done a ton of research on lately. One of the products that kept appearing in my search was the Social Thinking curriculum. I know there is a team of bloggers writing about these products and they can do a much better job at explaining them. My district doesn't have the program and probably won't be getting it soon due to the budget cuts. However, I can still make some coordinating materials in the hope that things will change next year. All it took for this DIY was a little inventiveness and the discovery of Jill Kuzma's character description freebie.
I printed out three copies of the character descriptions. Two of them were cut up for DIY projects and the third visited the laminator immediately upon printing.
-Take two vanilla folders and glue them together. You need to make sure that you can still close the folder up before you glue them.
-Character descriptions, which should be glued directly to the folder.
-Laminate the folder and separate character pictures (you may want to print these on cardstock or glue to poster board for added strength)
-Attach Velcro to the folder and the character pictures.
-Stick the character picture above the correct description
The project took me 3 days due to our lamination policy. If you have access to your own machine, it doesn't take long at all.
