3rd Grade Buddy Group

Session 4 2015/2016

Dear Parents,

Today we met for our fourth session of buddy group. We continued our discussion on having conversations and then read a book called, "I Can't Believe You Said That" by Julia Cook. This book helps children learn the value of thinking before they speak and realize that you don't have to verbalize everything that pops into your head. The book uses the following vocabulary that you can use with your children.


Thinking bubble - Words that form in your head. The words in your thought bubble are private and for you only.

Social filter - The social filter makes sure that some of the words in your thought bubble don't make it into your speech bubble. It keeps you from saying words that cause hurt feelings, embarrassment and show disrespect.

Talking bubble - The words that come out of your mouth for everyone to hear.


Have a nice evening.
