Teaching the Concept of Sharing

So while on my recent placement at a special school, my mentor asked me to prepare a sequence of lessons to be given individually to s student who has big difficulties with sharing.  I was really pleased to be able to do this as I have a little repertoire of social skills lessons “up my sleeve” and was quickly able to plan these lessons.
I searched for some appropriate songs and videos (to incorporate the use of ICTs) and downloaded these on to my iPad.  For the first lesson, although the student didn’t know me very well, she was very willing to participate due to having 1:1 adult attention and the irresistible lure of my iPad!  Together with a variety of resources I had prepared and a conversation script to invite another friend to play, my mentor was very excited with the progress the student had made over the course of three weeks.  A little success, for me.
