Students in grades K-8 are expected to actively participate in conversations and discussions with their peers. These sentence frames will help them begin conversations and to also keep the conversations going by paraphrasing and asking questions. I have used them across the curriculum. They truly change how your students speak in group discussions, with partners, and just sharing out in class. I've seen their writing improve as their speaking improves too!
