Weather Social Stories

Instructor: Clio Stearns

Clio has taught education courses at the college level and has a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction.

Learning about the weather and its implications for social behavior can be really important for students' safety and well-being. This lesson offers social stories that teach students about weather.

Weather and Social Stories

Using social stories can be an effective way to help students who are on the autistic spectrum, have speech and language delays, or struggle with physical, social and emotional regulation learn norms of behavior. Social stories offer scripted language told from a child's perspective, providing vocabulary and strategies for coping with new or stressful situations. The social stories in this lesson will help your students learn, talk and think about the weather.

Cold Weather

Where I live, we have four different seasons. There is spring, then there is summer and then there is fall. After fall comes winter. Winter is the coldest season of the year, but spring and fall can sometimes be cold, too. When it is cold outside, I sometimes get little goosebumps on my arms and legs. Sometimes my body feels like it is shivering, and my lips even turn a little bit blue.

Cold weather can be fun. When it is cold outside, snow sometimes falls from the sky. Snow can be beautiful, and it is fun to go sledding or build sculptures out of snow. Cold weather also makes it fun to stay inside, play with my friends and family, and find ways to get cozy.
