Help students develop efficient strategies when waiting for their turn to talk with this social story mini-book.
Let’s Be Social – Stories for the Classroom
Many children find it challenging to wait their turn… whether this be waiting for a turn on a piece of playground equipment, waiting for a turn on a device, or even waiting for a turn to talk!
Teach Starter has created a printable mini-book to help your students develop efficient strategies when waiting for their turn to talk in a conversation. Each page is designed in a simple manner with real-life photographs to help students make connections and understand the examples. In this mini-book, students will learn strategies such as:
- I need to wait quietly for my turn to talk.
- I can raise my hand or say, ‘Excuse me’ to let others know I want a turn.
- When it is not my turn to talk, I will listen.
The last page of the mini-book also poses a question with three picture choices for students to choose from as their answer.

This social narrative story can be used in a variety of different ways with your students. It could be used as a:
