Want to motivate your students to participate in class discussions? This resource is a great tool to motivate your students to actively participate in classroom and group discussion! I teach these sentences starters to my kids at the beginning of the year, and then model/encourage them to use them during discussion time.
I printed the chart and used a poster maker to create a poster to display in my classroom all year. I also print out a smaller version and use packing tape to adhere them to each student’s desk. This way they can reference them quickly during the day.
I have found that using these starters not only increased my student participation in listening and speaking, but also helped to build a respectful classroom environment where everyone’s ideas and thoughts are welcome!
