Sentence Starters

Sentence starters can be useful prompts for children who are struggling to order their thinking or express the way the feel. Children and young people can use them to communicate verbally or to write down their thoughts and feelings. They can also be used to encourage students to identify actions they can take to support their wellbeing.

Prior to using this resource with a child, please read through our guidance for delivering short activities, to ensure you have a good understanding of how to use the resources safely.
