Using discussion starters is a great way to incorporate speaking and listening standards while helping building a community of learners in your classroom.
Discussion starters can be used as part of morning meeting, a writing center, work on writing, partner work, morning work, or as writing prompts.
These discussion starters have been designed specifically for grades 1-3, however, there are some cards that may require examples or addition explanations provided by the teacher. In addition, most of the discussion starters are appropriate for grades 4-5 also.
Each month includes 27-36 discussions starters. This gives you the flexibility to choose the discussion starters that are JUST RIGHT for your students.
