Do you have students who just blurt out without thinking? Or who are reluctant to join conversations because they have no idea what to say? Use these skill-building activities to help them take the perspective of others and think through how to respond in conversations. They will be engaged while practicing appropriate responses using these important skills:

* Clarify- Restate to show you listened.
* Tell a story-share a similar feeling or event.
* Empathize- show the other person you understand how they feel.
* Ask questions to find out more information.
* Be supportive- offer help or a suggestion.
* Be positive- Make an enthusiastic or complimentary response.

What are buyers saying?

* My students love your conversation activities. This product is very helpful-especially for students who have difficulty generating ideas. Thank you for creating such a great product. Love the color coding too.

* A great way for students to learn to appropriately 'agree to disagree'. Can be so difficult for students but putting this concept in a game format naturally works on this important conversational skill!

* Really creative idea! Thank you!

* A great activity to move beyond just asking and answering questions by teaching students to engage in actual conversations.

* I just love this with the response key. My kids never ask questions or find out information from others so this will help. Thank you!
