Students can begin to learn about perspective taking by understanding that others have thoughts about a person's words and actions. Red Thoughts/ Blue Thoughts is a way to frame this idea for students. When our words and actions are expected, others will have blue thoughts about our choices. When our words and actions are unexpected others will have red thoughts about our choices.
Have students color the throught bubble red or blue based upon the choices of the people in each picture.
