These social skills lessons focus on point of view, understanding feelings, perspective taking, I-statements, coping with emotions, and more. Teaching social skills is extremely important for all children to be successful in and out of school. Each lesson includes 2-3 pages and are split into three major parts: a description of the social skill rule and why it is important, ways to practice and role-play the skill, and discussion questions. Printable discussion cards are also included.

Digital Version

I've updated this resource to include a completely digital version for Google Drive!

The social skills lessons in this document are specifically targeting empathy and understanding feelings. The following skills are identified:

• Understanding your feelings

• Needing space or time to yourself

• Noticing the feeling of others

• Being sensitive to others

• Perspective-taking

• Seeing others’ point of view, even when you disagree

• Listening to a friend

• How to cope with emotions

• Using “I” statements

• Changing your mood

• Bringing out the positive

• Using self-control

How to Teach Social Skills

You may choose to use these lessons in a small group or a whole class lesson. Either way, it is most important that students get a chance to interact, practice the skills, and discuss what they have learned through the discussion questions. Students should be encouraged to share responses aloud, talk out solutions to problems, and explain their reasons. It is important that social skills are taught and discussed so that students can generalize the skills to many areas in their life.

Regular education teachers, special education teachers, and other support professionals could all benefit from using these lessons. They are printable and require no prep!
