Here's a really appealing way to get kids to think about how words and behaviors can impact others: cartoons!
Included are two pages with a total of four cartoon scenarios (the first is already filled in as an example). Each scenario is presented twice, requiring students to fill in speech and thought bubbles with unexpected/inappropriate behaviors and then with expected/appropriate behaviors. An example that one of my 3rd graders did is in the preview, since it's kind of hard to describe.
Also included are two perspective-taking pages. These help students see how his words and behavior can impact others. Laminate or place the pages in a plastic page protector, then use a dry erase marker to write what they said and consider other people's reactions. Erase and then fill it in again, but this time help them think of more productive or polite words to use. Would that change the way others think about them? This is a visual way to help kids process following an event when they said something mean or rude or thoughtless and either got into trouble or hurt someone's feelings. This is a Michelle Garcia Winner Social Thinking® technique.
