Asking for What You Need and Want

View the Resource

In this activity, children practice asking for what they need or want. The teacher’s responses in the scripted scenario are warm and sensitive. Teaching children how to put their feelings into words will ensure you can help them solve a problem effectively. When a child shares their needs with you, continue the interaction until you’ve fully met them.
