Each month I have lunch in the classroom with a few students. We call it "Chew and Chat." I use these cards for conversation starters with the group. We also work on social skills like looking people in the eye, not talking with your mouth full, and taking turns to talk.
These cards help get the conversation started, especially for those reluctant talkers. The cards could also be used for opinion writing prompts.
There are 32 cards in all. I have made them available in color and in black and white. They are most appropriate for elementary aged students.
I hope you find them useful!
