Learning about Communication Worksheet – For kids teens and adults

Effective communication is necessary for all ages. These are the 6 points that are necessary to communicate effectively. 

Maintaining Eye contact
When we give someone our full attention while they are speaking, we look at them. We are reminded to focus on what someone is saying when we look at them, and we can learn more by observing their body language and facial expressions.

Be Respectful when talking
When you talk, consider the messages that your voice’s various tones and volumes send to the audience. What does it mean to speak in a polite manner? To find out, try varying your vocal timbre and words.
Active Listening
Hearing what people are saying is easy, but active listening requires work. Active listening requires setting aside your own thoughts in order to fully understand what someone is saying to you, as opposed to thinking about how you are feeling at the time or what you want to say next.
Be open-minded
Sometimes, we can approach a conversation believing we already know everything. But frequently, when we listen to others and have an open mind, we learn far more than we initially thought. Respectful communication requires an open mind, which is an essential component.

Empathy/ being kind hearted
We are all on different paths in life and we all make mistakes. You can still be kind to someone, even if you disagree with what they’ve said or done. You may be honest and voice your opinions without being harsh. It takes a good heart and empathy to do this.
Being patience
When we are patient, we give ourselves and others the time we need to convey our thoughts. Your breath might serve as a gentle reminder to pause and consider how crucial it is to communicate with patience. To listen, understand, and share takes time. Both to ourselves and to others, patience is a gift.
