Lets Play TogetherIts fun to play with my friends.Part 1: Getting My Friends AttentionWe play with toys at recess. We play with lots of friends.Sometimes when I talk to a friend, he does not answer.Hey Hey kids Hey do you want to play?I have to get his attention. I have to look at my friend. I have to say his name.Jordan. Jordan, listenI can get in front of my friend. I can look at him and say his name.Matthew?Sometimes, I have to keep trying. I can tap my friend on the shoulder. I can look at her and say her name again.So, to get my friends attention, I need to:Look at himSay his nameTap her on the shoulderKeep trying.Matthew?Getting My Friends AttentionLook at herSay her nameTap her on the shoulderKeep trying.Social Power Point Its fun to play with my friends.Part 2: Sharing and Taking TurnsSometimes, my friend has something that I want.I wish I had a soccer ball to play withI need to use my words to ask for the toy.First, Ill look at my friend and say his name.Im glad Teddy didnt just grab it from me.Corey, can I use that ball?Then I will ask for the toy. I will put out my hand when I ask for the toy. That helps my friend know what I want.Shelly, can I use your game ?My friend might say, Sure, Ill give you the toy. Thats called sharing.Kaylie, can I play with that dinosaur?Sure, Sami, Ill give you the toy.After a while, I can let my friend have another turn. Thats called taking turns.Here Greg, you can have this back.Or, if she isnt ready to share, she might say, Not right now.Not right nowIm still using these.HINT: If you say, Not right now.Use a polite voice.I can wait a little while. I can play with something else while I wait. Maybe my friend will share the toy later. Ill keep playing with the blocks, maybe Brendon will let me play with the airplane later.It is fun to play with friends. Sharing and taking turns with toys means that everyone has fun.Sharing and Taking Turns:Sharing means letting my friend use something that I am playing with.Taking turns means that both friends get to play with the toy. Ill try to remember the rules about Sharing and Taking Turns:When I want something my friend has, I can look at my friend and say his name.I can put out my hand and ask for it.He might say OK and give me the toy then I can let him have a turn later.Or, he might say Not right now. Then Ill find something else to play with for awhile.Its fun to play with my friends.So, What Do You Think?What should you do if you would rather just play by yourself for awhile?Sharing and Taking TurnsHell give me the toyI can give him a turn laterIll find something else to play with for awhile.I can ask again later.If he says OK:If he says, Not right now:Social Power Point This lesson is divided into two parts. If students are young or need repetition to learn a concept, the parts can be taught separately, then reviewed as a whole taking up to three lessons. *Have students identify what each group is playing with. Have them discuss their favorite things to do at recess and to name some of the friends that they like to play with.*Model this by having a student call out to you, but ignoring him/her.*Model and practice in pairs*Model and practice tapping someone on the shoulder. Discuss appropriate amount of pressure, length of time and number of times someone should tap another persons shoulder. Discuss what to do if someone continues to turn away even after you have tapped them on the shoulder (talk to another adult, walk away)*Role play this with two adults.Then role play some mistakes:No eye contactForgot to say nameDidnt keep tryingDidnt tap on the shoulderFinally, role play the correct way again.Pair up the students (or begin with adult/student pairings) to practice this skill.*If you plan to end the lesson at this point pass out the social power point magnets, homework sheets and parent notes. End with the next slide (and begin with it for the next lesson)*Review this slide and the next three slides, then practice the skill.*Two adults role play the correct steps in asking for an item.Then, role play some mistakes:No eye contactNot saying friends nameJust grabbing the itemFinally role play the correct way again.Pair up students (or begin with adult/student pairs) and have them practice the skill.*Review this slide and the next three slides, then practice the skill.*Practice saying Not right now in a polite voice. Give an example of saying it in a voice that is not polite. End with another example of a polite voice. *Two adults role play the correct steps in asking for an item with your partner sharing or not sharing the itemThen, role play some mistakes:No eye contactNot saying friends nameJust grabbing the itemFinally role play the correct way again.Pair up students (or begin with adult/student pairs) and have them practice the skill.*At the end of the lesson, review the Social Power Point and pass out the magnet, homework sheet and parent note. *
