Perspective taking is a critical skill for the facilitation of appropriate social interactions. It’s also important for comprehension (i.e. putting self in the shoes of a character in a story) and self-management.
This product, ideal for small groups (i.e. speech-language therapy, counseling, classroom-based mini-lessons), offers 42 mini scenarios, providing students with opportunities to imagine themselves in various situations and identify the following types of information—
what one might think
how one might feel
what one might say.
46 Scenario Cards; 2 Blank Cards
6 “What Are You Thinking” Cards
6 “How do You Feel” Cards
6 “What Will You Say” Cards
Emotion Bank (1 plain; 1 with patterned background; 1 blank)
Cut cards apart. Put all Scenario Cards, face down, in a pile on the table. Put all Question Cards, face down, in a separate pile.
Students draw a Scenario Card, then, draw a Question Card and respond to it. *Students who can read may wish to refer to the Emotion Bank for assistance in identifying various feelings. While the Emotion Bank is comprehensive, it's not exhaustive. For this reason, a blank emotion bank is included so that you can create a list of words that you have been teaching during your sessions.
