This zipped folder contains a variety of materials that can be used for behavior intervention and social skills instruction for students in grades K-5.
Social Skills Posters with Visuals (16) and Cloze Activity
This file contains social skills posters I created to help students learn the 16 essential social skills. I wanted to use visuals to help students learn the steps and give them a cloze activity to enhance their comprehension. Some students are more reluctant to do the cloze activities but it works for some! 🙂 These 16 social skills are the same that the PH program at my school uses for teaching social skills and replacement behaviors. They are a nice reference for role playing activities or for a resource room bulletin board!
Who Cares? Poetry for Teaching Social Skills and Replacement Behaviors
This file contains poems I wrote to use when helping students with social skills. I wanted to try something different and I really like poetry. This pack includes 14 poems (all different types) that are based on the 16 essential social skills. I am going to have my students use these poems in addition to the Social Skills Posters with Visuals and Cloze Activity (which is available in my store) to create “Interactive Social Skills Journals.” I am going to have students glue the poems and posters with visuals in their journals and then respond to them using pictures, their own poetry or a written response.
My Book of Feelings: A Social Skills Freebie!
This is a little activity/book I made for students working identifying their feelings and appropriate responses. There are pages with pictures and pages without if you’d like students to draw pictures of themselves feeling those emotions. There are 8 pages for 8 different feelings/emotions and a cover page for each set. You could have students make a book, or just use the individual pages for separate activities based on the student’s needs. I used this to help students identify replacement behaviors.
Social Skills Labels for Interactive Journal
This file includes 32 social skills headings. If you teach one a week, this would give you a topic per week for almost the whole school year. The social skills include the 16 essential social skills, 6 feelings, and 8 additional social skills that my students need some support with. I love interactive journals and thought it would be a great strategy for teaching social skills. I am going to have students use the social skills posters and social skills poetry along with these labels to create interactive notebooks. I will give students new information to glue on the right side and give students an opportunity to respond to the material using words or pictures on the left side of their notebook.
Puzzle Token Boards (PDF)
Students can earn or lose pieces based on their behavior. As a contingency contract, the student must have one piece left to earn their incentive. As a token board, student must earn all 4 pieces to receive their reward. (You can also cut the puzzles into more pieces to fit your needs). I typically use these puzzle token boards for younger students who need a daily incentive to shape behavior.
Puzzle Coloring Token Boards (PDF)
Students earn puzzle pieces for target behaviors and color in pieces as they earn them during the day or part of the day (you can use 2 a day, one for morning and one for afternoon if that works better). Student must earn all 4 pieces to receive their reward. I typically use these puzzle token boards for younger students who need a daily incentive to shape behavior. They also provide small incentives throughout the day, if they like to color.
My Personal Behavior Clip Charts (mini classroom versions) (PDF)
This file contains 5 versions of personal behavior charts that you can print on cardstock, laminate, attach a mini clothespin, and use with your students.
Editable Personal Behavior Clip Charts (2 Word versions)
Individualized Behavior Charts with a Weekly Reward (PDF)
This file contains 5 charts that you can use with students. I’ve used visuals for 5 incentives that are popular with my students, or there is a blank template you can use. Print and put in a page protector and record behavior using symbol of your choice (star, smiley, etc.) or print a sheet each week, keep track of student’s behavior on the sheet, and have the completed sheet serve as 6 weeks worth of behavioral data. Finally, arrange the reward time at the end of the day on Friday with your student.
Hole punch Behavior Charts (PDF)
These charts can be used as contingency contracts where students must keep a certain amount of tokens un-punched, or as token boards where they receive punches for good behavior.
Functional Behavioral Information (PDF)
This file contains a poster of the 4 functions of behavior, an assessment tool I created, and some ideas for prevention and incentives for behavior. The assessment tool and list are not research based assessments; just a quick tool you can use to get started.
Behavior Chart Samples and Templates (PDF)
This file is a compilation of the different behavior charts I’ve made for students. Some serve as token boards where students earn tokens for desirable behaviors, and some serve as contingency contracts where students lose tokens for unwanted behaviors. I’ve included examples to use as reference and removed the specific information to create templates for you to write on and use.
Editable Behavior Charts PowerPoints (Portrait & Landscape)
These slideshows are compilations of different behavior charts I’ve made editable for you to use with your students. For best results, download all the CK Fonts (100) available in my store for personal and classroom use, as these are the fonts I’ve used in the templates. I also recommend downloading and installing CK Picture Schedule Pics font and the CK School Pics font which come in very handy in creating behavior charts. I’ve added text boxes where I would edit the documents, but feel free to add or remove them as needed.
Behavior Reminders for Students (PDF)
This file is a handful of the different behavior reminders I’ve made for students. You can use these reminders by taping them on students’ desks, on their planners, in the hallway, as a pin they wear and on your lanyard.
Behavior Intervention Plan Editable Template (Word)
Behavior Documentation and Data Collection Forms (PDF)
This file contains different forms I’ve created to track behavior data. I’ve made these forms editable for you using text boxes. For best results, download and install CK Fonts sets 1-5, available for free for personal and classroom use in my TpT store. You can use this behavior data and documentation to monitor students’ IEP or RTI progress, or for information for a Functional Behavioral Assessment.
Behavior Documentation and Data Collection Editable Forms (Word)
Behavior Contract Template (editable Word and non-editable PDF versions)
Basic Behavior Rules (PDF)
This file contains basic behavior reminders for students as well as larger visuals for each rule if you’d like to make them your classroom rules and post them.
CKPictureSchedulePics True Type Font File
CKSchoolPics True Type Font File
I included several samples and editable documents in the hope that you can find something to work for you and your students, but because every student has different behaviors, needs, schedules, and motivation, you may have to tweak some of the documents to meet your needs. .
*** For best results you need to download all CK Fonts (sets 1-5) available in my store for free for personal and classroom use. You’ll also need to download and install CKSchoolPics and CKPictureSchedulePics fonts included in zipped file. Otherwise, the textboxes may look funny and not be formatted properly. ***
On the editable documents, add or remove text boxes as needed and if you’d like to hide something, simply insert a textbox filled with a white background over what you wish to hide. If you need support using any of these materials, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help.
Because I understand how difficult behavior intervention can be, I tried to make this an AWESOME value for you. I hope you love this folder and that you can use it to really help both you and your students! If so, I’d really appreciate your feedback and follows.
Thank you so much and God bless you!
