Tell a Story of Contempt is designed to help kids 8 years and up build essential social language and literacy skills. This resource is part of a comprehensive collection that guides children through understanding nonverbal language, vocabulary for emotions, and the language skills needed for understanding and telling a story.
Each of our “STORY” Lessons help students integrate their understanding of facial expressions and tone of voice for a particular emotion, with the language and literacy skills they need for understanding and telling a narrative. In the this lesson, students explore story in the context of the emotion of contempt. While the vocabulary may be unfamiliar, students will instantly recognize the feeling of contempt in the relatable story of Dog vs. Cat (video linked to the pdf). After that students will build their own story where siblings who share a room feel contempt when their parents tell them to clean up. Story grammar icons and sentence stems are included so that students get lots of practice with a narrative episode.
This lesson will help students practice the following social language and literacy skills:
- Perspective taking for different characters in a story
- Conflict resolution and problem solving
- Sequencing a 10-part narrative
- Describing character and setting
- Explaining character motivations and feelings
- Telling and retelling a narrative episode
