Produced by the Riverina Schools Project Partnership, 2009 Talk To Me Lesson Thirteen Using Language to Solve a Problem
Talk to Me In our last lesson we talked about how to check that your message is getting across. Who can remember some of the things we talked about? Today we are going to talk about how to stop fights happening by using language.
Using language to get along Sometimes people do not agree. When this happens, some people can get angry because they aren’t getting their own way. If one person gets angry, then the other person can get angry. This can lead to a fight.
How to Solve a Problem Instead of pushing or fighting to get your way, you should tell the person why you think you are right. If someone comes up to you and starts a fight you should say: –“Excuse me, but why did you do that?” –OR –Can you please stop that. It’s not very nice.
You should use language to talk to them rather than hurting them to make them stop. If the person does not stop when you ask them to, you should tell the teacher. When you use words to stop problems from happening then everyone feels good and no one gets hurt.
How can the children on the floor stop this problem? Let’s brainstorm some things the children could say to the boy to make him stop.
