Social Skills-Volume Control

From the author's website:  Isabella is a spirited girl who enjoys shouting out her thoughts, ideas, and feelings.  In fact, she loves using her loud voice so much; it's earned her the nickname "Decibella!"  

This book is just so fun!  I am working with a few students who struggle with understanding the difference between their indoor voice and outdoor voice.  This book explains five different volumes as well as when they are appropriate.   I also love that the author gives an example of a silly word to practice with.  I have students use "Slurpadoodle" and practice saying it in their whisper voice, 6-inch voice, table talk voice, strong speaker voice and outside voice.

I also created a worksheet:

I have students list the places/situations that each voice should be used in.

Finally, we did a little craftivity to go along with the story:

We glued the worksheet on the back and these were sent home:)
