My wonderful co-worker created this data sheet for the section of social behavior and play on the VB-MAPP. It is a no frills, get the job done, simple and easy data sheet! I love it because it is all on one page and you can carve out an hour to observe your student and check off what he/she is doing by simply following the data sheet. It includes the criteria so all you have to do is plug it back into your score sheet and you are DUNZO! (done-zo? um... finished!)
Hooray for super cool co-workers who do this kind of thing on their own free time and then share the goods. We need all teachers to be this way right?!?!
Here is the link!!! Get it while it's hot ;)
This social stuff is very important when you are looking at a very early learner who needs a lot of support in becoming aware of his/her peers. Teaching things like following others or even just engaging in parallel play can be difficult. Remember to always assess where the weaknesses are and target them so you know exactly how to help your little guys.
