FREE MISC. LESSON - “Making New Year’s Resolutions with Visual Supports (Autism; Special Ed)”

by Autism Classroom Resources-Christine Reeve
2nd - 12th Grade

Help your young students or students with special needs create meaningful new year's resolutions with this free social story and templates. You can edit it in Adobe Acrobat Reader or print a copy and cut options apart to make it more accessible.

*UPDATED so that it no longer contains dates


  • It includes a word bank and choices to facilitate choosing resolutions.
  • The word bank can be used as cut and paste as well
  • Includes blank page to make your own type of resolution and word bank for your unique situation
  • Includes and editable PDF and a printable PDF

How to Use it

  • You can make a book from the title slide and pages 3-7.
  • Read the book with the class to talk about what resolutions are and discuss examples.
  • Then students can complete page 8, What Is Your New Year’s Resolution? On this page, the students circle one word that they want to base their resolution on. If you want them to write more than one, they could circle more than 1 word.
  • Based on what word is circled, give the student the sheet from 9-14 that corresponds to that word.
  • These pages can be used in a variety of ways. Each page has resolutions that correspond to the word in the sentence. Two of the choices can be edited in Adobe Acrobat. The students can cut out the resolution they choose and paste it in the sentence above..
  • You could also cut these off and give them other choices. Students who can write, could use the choices at the bottom as a word bank or you could cut these off and have them write without the cues.

Hopefully these templates provide a jumping off point for classes to discuss making new year’s resolutions.
