Are you running orientation for Kindergarten programs? This editable powerpoint contains social story template pages for students who are starting school. Please note that you will need Powerpoint in order to access this file.
I recommend adjusting the text to suit your school context and adding in photos of people/places/school item wherever applicable. I have included multiple options for some pages- just delete the slides with the pages that you do not require. You can also delete any unneeded text or text boxes.
Social stories are a brilliant way to help support children as they transition to new environments. They help to reduce anxiety and fear of the unknown by familiarising kids with what to expect throughout the school day, and also to show them the people who they will encounter.
Social stories can be printed or emailed out to parents. We encourage parents to read the social story multiple times in the lead up to starting school. It helps to make that first day of school a little more exciting and a little less daunting!
