Target social skills, emotional regulation, conflict resolution, interpersonal communication, growth mindset and perspective taking with this 61-page resource. Inspired by the book Nonviolent Communication by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, Peaceful Communication targets four language skills:

1. Language that shares feelings
2. Language that tells what happened to cause a problem
3. Language that makes requests
4. Language that shows empathetic listening

I have used these materials with early elementary students. You can visit my blog post for detailed pictures of the materials in action. Topics and activities include:

Blame Game: taking responsibility for your feelings
Emotions Triangle: sharing feelings & understanding perspective
Name Calling vs. Observations
Shark Tank Card Game: requests vs. demands
Shark/Dolphin Says: a fun twist on “Simon Says”
Shark Squish: use modeling dough to “squish” sharks and practice empathetic listening
Anchor Charts & Worksheets
