Complimenting Others and Compliment Starters | PERSPECTIVE TAKING ACTIVITIES

  • $3.50

Perspective Taking is an important social skill for children to learn. Knowing and understanding others well enough to know what to say and what not to say, can be tricky for some children. The ability to understand what might be a compliment and what might be an insult, can really help children to make and keep friends. 

This activity will help you teach children these skills in a fun and interactive way. It works well in both small and large groups. 

It is a nice addition to a friendship unit or character development unit. It is fun to use on friendship day or Valentine's day. It's also great to use at the end of the school year and or before a transition to a new school is coming. It can also be a great activity to use with individual children who are struggling with saying kind words to others. 

This activity can be used with typical learners, children with special needs and or social challenges, and or inclusive classrooms.
