This social story teaches kids how to play the childhood game Tag and includes:
- Where you can play the game of tag
- What to say when you want to ask a friend to play this with you
- A description of what being "it" means
- What to do when you are "it"
- A reminder to tag your friends gently and why
- A reminder not to tag the same person over and over
- What happens when you tag someone
- What to say when you don't feel like playing any more
Like all social stories I write, full color photographs of real children are used instead of clipart. In my experience, full color photos are more relatable to autistic children, like my son, than clipart. Diverse children are included as much as possible so that every child feels represented. Written scripts are also given where needed to help provide the child with the language they need to be successful in the given social scenario.

Great resource! Would definitely recommend! Loved it!
Wonderful to use with my Pre-K Early Intervention students!
I started out making a social story, but when I saw the thoroughness that this one offered, I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it instead of spending hours working on it. Thank you for this time saver!
Good story! A little too wordy for my students with severe special needs. I simplified it when I read it.
My first grade boys no matter what we did/said would always have issues playing tag at recess whether it was being too rough or not playing fairly. I found this social story, projected it on my board and we read through it together. We were at 2 weeks no issues and then school shut down for COVID-19. I loved how this broke down the different parts of tag for them and it really helped them come together and play safely!
