Tucker Turtle at Home
All materials are in English / Spanish
In the Tucker the turtle scripted social story, Tucker has impulse-control issues: When he gets mad, he kicks, yells, and hits his family and friends. That all changes when Tucker learns to “think like a turtle” instead. He keeps his body and hands to himself and stays quiet while taking three deep, calming breaths. Then, he starts to consider ways he can improve the situation that upset him—and just like that, Tucker has better control over his emotions.
