Body Language - Parent 2



Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning how to recognize and respond to body language.

Definition: Body language is nonverbal communication. Body movements and facial expressions can convey meaning and show emotion.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What is body language?
  • Is body language an important factor in communication?
  • Can body language provide us with information different from the words someone is saying?


Role play with your family members to show what body language would look like in these situations.

  • You just got the gift you had wished for at your birthday party.
  • You fell off your bike.
  • It is storming and you don’t like storms.
  • Your mom tells you it’s time to turn off the TV and do your homework.
