PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These My Turn to Talk Cards were developed after a frustrating day of teaching classroom lessons. I had two extreme examples in one of my second grade classes. I had a handful of students who blurted out whatever came to mind and a handful of students that didn’t say a word. I wanted that to change. The My Turn to Talk Cards is a tool to help teach self-control to students who blurt out. In addition, it serves as a visual reminder of which students need to be called on and invited to participate more. After using these cards, I noticed a huge difference in the reduction of blurt-outs. Students began to stop and think before speaking because they really wanted to make sure their comment counted.
Directions:
*Students are given a certain number of cards for the lesson (I give each student 2 cards for a 30 minute lesson).
*When a student answers a question, or makes a comment, they turn their card over (or hands it to you) indicating they had a turn to talk.
*If a student blurts out, I have them give me one of their cards. This helps them stop and think the next time they are tempted to blurt a comment out.
*Before each lesson, I always comment about how as a class, we are practicing taking turns TALKING and LISTENING. When students have all their cards turned over, their turn to talk is finished and now it’s their turn to practice good listening.

***Not every student uses every card in a lesson. I don’t use these cards in every class. I use them mainly in the classes that need extra assistance in that area.
