These Conversation Question Cards go great with the Talking Blooming Tree!!!
THREE TOPICS OF CONVERSATION
-Page 1: Questions about school
-Page 2: Personal questions
-Page 3: Would you rather questions
PRINTING-print on card stock
-the color designs are meant to be printed then glued to each one of the pages (different design for each category of questions)
-If you don't want to use the color ink (I don't blame you!) don't print the even pages and just print the questions on different colored card stock!
When used with the Talking Blooming Tree:
-Have each child take turns grabbing a question card and asking their conversation peer:
-Child A will pick a question card and when they ask the question they add the question card to the tree
-Child B will answer the question and add an answer card to the tree
-Child A then makes a comment about Child B's answer and adds the comment card to the tree
-Then Child B pulls a question card
-Repeat until the tree is built
-Add the leaves to the tree as each child recalls what they learned about each other.
*this is a great way to get them familiar with the tree before they are required to create their own questions :)
Used without the Talking Blooming Tree
-Use the cards as an Ice Breaker activity
-Have each child ask a question and each peer will answer
