Pragmatic Language Peer Conversations REAL PHOTOS
The resource includes TWENTY full-color pictures, each with a conversation starter and three follow up questions/comments. These can be used as individual practice pages or bound together into a book. Students are encouraged to listen to (or read) the yellow talk bubble (conversation starter) on each page and then decide if the children's responses are on-topic or off- topic. The prompts along the bottom can be used for students who do best with a pointing response.
Also included the same twenty full-color pictures, this time with only the conversation starter (the other three talk bubbles are blank). These pages allow students to provide open-ended on-topic comments and can be used in a variety of ways. The pages can be laminated for durability. Students can then write in the blank talk bubbles using dry erase markers. These pages can also be printed without lamination (in color or gray scale), and students can fill in the blank talk bubbles with a pencil.
