Are you ready for some football? You can work on conversation skills with your students using this fun football themed activity!!
Each team (or student) chooses a topic of conversation card (10 included, with 5 blank templates to make your own). Each time they or someone on their team completes one of the five critical parts of conversation, they earn the corresponding card and their team advances 10 yards! Gain all five cards to score a touchdown on each topic. Five skill areas targeted are:
asking related questions
orienting body in group towards speaker
You have to keep your head in the game because if you make an off topic comment, you get a flag on the play and lose 10 yards!
The teacher or SLP is the team coach and should review how a conversation works and the important pieces (examples included) prior to playing the game. Your conversation quarterbacks will be pros in no time!
