Change YOU messages to I messages, build communication skills and social skills. Must have for conflict mediations between students learning to resolve conflicts peacefully.
Students will each get their own I message speech bubble and use it to help change You message statements to be I statements. Great for students who are struggling to make and keep friends.
This activity takes about 30 minutes to complete with a small or large group. The goal is for students to learn and practice changing you messages to I messages, and to identify situations when using I messages would be appropriate.
