My students sometimes have difficulty adding to a conversation when the topic is not theirs. These cards provide examples of topics people sometimes start a conversation with and give structured practice for responding appropriately. Students read the comment or topic side and then use their reasoning to figure out a reply that could keep the conversation going without changing the topic or dominating it. Students are told that the reply is a suggested answer and it is possible to have other answers. This can be used as a group activity, with answers discussed by members of the group.
There are 24 comment cards (red bubbles) with 24 adjoining reply cards (blue arrow). Cards are rectangles 3 ½ x 2 ¼ inches. There are 4 sets to a page. Print them out on cardstock. Cut them apart on the horizontal lines. Fold the cards on the vertical lines and glue or laminate shut. This will create a sturdy card with a front and a corresponding back.
Directions are also provided for a conversation scaffolding activity.
The conversation scaffolding activity is included as a way to bring the developed skills to the conversation level, but still provide structure and a visual representation.
This set of cards has recently been updated with new clip art. If you bought this set previously, you can download the updated version for free.
