Teaching Overreacting, Underreacting and Okay Reacting- Social Skills

You Make The Call! 
I connected with our fabulous activities' director and got some used referee shirts and some whistles for the kids in my social skills class. We all became refs and practiced making the call....on Over-reacting, Okay-reacting, and Under-reacting in a social situation.
The kids loved that they got to wear the referee shirts and make the calls. We made up hand signals for the three calls so that they could do it quietly. Soon we got to just use the hand signals to indicate to the students if they needed to pay attention to the way they were responding.
