Social Skills Focus: Taking-Turns
Taking turns during play and in conversation is an important social skill. Our Allstar cohorts each practiced this skill in different ways this week.
Visuals to Support Learning
Our Purple Allstars practiced taking turns while playing with various toys today. To help support the concept of taking turns, “my turn” and “your turn” we used visual cards throughout the class. Providing a visual not only makes a potentially abstract and difficult task more concrete, it also helped our Allstars wait patiently for their turn to change to “my turn.”
Our Blue Allstars practiced taking turns during play as well as conversation. They practiced “stop, look, and listen” to reinforce the skills they’ve learned so far and to begin practicing conversational turn taking.
