This worksheet focuses on what to say in different social situations.
When we solve problems, we need to decide if they are big or small, if we need help solving them, and try out different solutions.
It is important to comment or ask a question as part of turn taking in a conversation.
If we say all of our thoughts out loud, we can hurt other people’s feelings. We can use a filter to keep in thoughts we should only think and let out the thoughts we can say.
Our new premium packets are worksheet bundles to give even more social skills content! Our first one, Conversation Drivers & Stoppers uses this same concept from our video lessons to teach how to drive a conversation or keep it going. Conversation Stoppers will stop a conversation before it is naturally over and generally cause uncomfortable or confused feelings.
This packet includes 36 scenario cards, a mini game, a poster with visuals, as well as a homework and review page.
We recommend this packet for any students working on conversation skills from elementary to middle school. Use in tandem with our Conversation Drivers & Stoppers video lesson and activities. We have a wide range of interactive activities on this concept from Bingo and Guess What Happens Next to Fork in the Road and Two Sides which use video clips to work on this skill in many different ways.

Conversation GPS is an interactive game designed for two or more players. Set up in a board game style, players have to navigate through a conversation using our game cards as a GPS to pick topics, make comments, ask questions, and respond! With spaces like “Shift the Topic” and “Pay the ticket”, there are many fun obstacles and challenges along the way. The first to drive their car to the end of the board is the winner!
For many students, starting, sustaining, and remaining on topic in a conversation is challenging. The goal of our Conversation GPS is to offer a supported fun platform for students to practice conversations, gain confidence, and experience success.
Friendship boundaries are guidelines and rules that will help you create healthy and lasting relationships with your peers.
How would you deal with this situation?
Match each situation to an emotion you could feel if this were to happen to you. Tell about another time you felt this way.
We can match the size of our reaction to the size of the problem.
Being flexible means we can change or adapt our behavior. It helps us handle hard situations and lets others have good thoughts about us. Tell if each behavior is being flexible.
Match each scenario with the corresponding feelings & thoughts
Decide if the thought is a “Smooth Thought” or a “Prickly Thought”
Public means out in the open for all to see. Private means things we keep to ourselves. There are some things we only talk about in private.
Frustrated feelings can happen when you’re trying to do something different or new, and you’re not having success. Frustrated is an uncomfortable feeling.
Context clues are the hints in a sentence we can use to tell us what words mean. It helps to read the sentence, find the clue, and figure out it’s meaning!
Read each situation and think about how the person will feel based on the action that had happened. Have you ever seen a situation like this?
