Hello – Speaking About Spring and Some Other Things – A Conversation Starter and Maintenance Activity was designed for students to be motivated by a topic to then sustain the conversation by asking follow-up questions, formulating comments, taking turns during the conversation, answering questions using specific referential vocabulary, providing compliments and ending the conversation correctly.
There are 36 topic cards. Many cards were developed around a spring theme and some were developed for motivational purposes.
There are also 9 ‘roles’ of the conversation cut-outs. These were designed for the teacher or therapist to print out on cardstock (or glue on cardstock once printed), laminate and then staple onto a tongue depressor / thick popsicle stick. Students will take turns performing the specific roles of the conversation in the group. Students will have an opportunity to check off boxes of the roles of the conversation after completion.
