“Sometimes our class sits on the carpet. We sit on the carpet to listen to stories and for group lessons.”
“The teacher wants the students to be quiet and still.”
Give an idea about what might be in the minds of others in the story or provide details about the emotions and thoughts of others.
“My friends are trying hard to listen so they can enjoy the story or learn from the teacher. It can be hard for them to listen if someone is moving all around.”
Describe one or two of the student’s possible feelings or responses.
“It is hard for me to sit still. When the teacher tells me to sit still I might feel mad.”
Suggest desired (expected) responses designed to be supportive to the specific student.
“When I want to jump around while the teacher is reading, I can do floor push ups, push and pull with my hands or walk to the back of the group.”
“My friends will be happy when I can remember to use my ideas to be still during carpet time!”

with my friends
When I play, I sometimes feel like taking toys, using mean words, or hitting and kicking.
My Friends get sad or mad when I hit, kick, use mean words, or take toys.
If I want to join in play, I need to join nicely or ask to play with my friends’ toys.
Can I play with you?
I can say, “Can I play with that toy?” or “Can I play with you?”.
Super Friend would do.
Super Friends use:
Use nice talking,
Gentle hands and feet,
Look with their eyes,
Listen with their ears, &
Take turns with toys.
