Social Stories on Walking in the Hallway

Instructor: Clio Stearns

Helping your students walk through the hallway in a safe and orderly manner does not have to be an onerous task. This lesson offers social stories that will teach your students how to walk properly through the halls.

Walking Through the Halls

All teachers have been there: you are walking your students to art, music or lunch, and suddenly, you simply cannot believe their behavior. Maybe they are arguing, or maybe they are just screaming at the top of their lungs. The same sorts of problems can also happen when you send students to the bathrooms or on errands, and they disappear for twenty minutes.

The hallway can be a place where students forget what they know about good behavior, and they might feel especially unregulated and out of control. One way to help students remember hallway behavior is by giving them social stories that help them memorize short phrases and strategies for strong hallway behavior. The social stories in this lesson will help you and your students manage the stress that can be the school hallway.

Walking Through the Hallway as a Group

When our class goes to art, music or gym, we have to walk through the hallways of our school to get there. First we get in line. We line up in a particular order, with a leader at the front. We follow the leader and our teacher through the school until we get where we are going.
