This digital download helps bring your family into conversation about going BACK TO SCHOOL.
Roll the dice to start a conversation. Here are three dice: one on people, another on patterns, and a third that’s personal. Each cube has six questions on school themes, such as
- People/Social (Who are you excited to see & why? How will you deal with bullying & cliques?...)
- Patterns/Rituals (How can we avoid morning madness? Which of you personal habits will help you succeed?)
- Personal/Myself (How will you stay true to yourself? How do you deal with criticism & judgment? ...)
Designed to stimulate conversations that help kids adjust to school life, and support families for the school year.
1. MAKE YOUR DICE
Materials: Get your scissors, a glue stick and some heavy printing paper. Instructions: Print and decorate your dice. (It’s easier, while the paper is flat!) Then, cut out the dice, fold on the dotted lines and glue together. Bravo, you’re ready to roll!
2. ROLL THE DICE
In this activity, you have three dice, each with six questions about school life. Over dinner, roll a cube and explore the question that pops up. Tip: listen to each person’s response to a question; then discuss the emerging theme.
3. HAVE A THINK
After dinner, pull out your journal and reflect on:
- What helped us be in conversation?
- What hindered, diminished or blocked our conversation?
- What insights were discovered?
4. SHARE AND REPEAT
Before your next dinner, exchange views on what helped, hindered & was learnt last time. Then roll the dice and try it again. Share your tips socially @sharingdialogue #helpsdialogue #hindersdialogue #dialogueinsights
