Use the conversation starter cards to talk to the class about emotions, behaviour and consequences. Explore different behaviours and ask the children how they could express themselves if they feel cross, scared, worried, upset etc
The cards move onto questions that help the child learn what to do in different circumstances including questions such as:
- How do you feel when things change unexpectedly?
- What can you do if you have hurt someone’s feelings?
- Do you ever feel afraid of someone else?
- Is it OK to cry?
- When is it OK to say no
The set follows through with questions asking the children to discuss consequences with questions such as:
- What might happen if you … kick, bite, hit, push?
- How you can tell someone you want to be left alone or want time out?
Use this set as a starting board for conversation around social understanding and interaction.
