One of the things I really like to teach my students right away in the beginning of the school year is that we need to make sure that we are good listeners. So I created little cards to help students learn to listen and speak in conversations.
These cards can be used just as cards, or placed on sticks as demonstrated in the picture.
Students use these cards with the sentence stems to guide them on what to say during conversations.
Head on over to my blog, The Owl Teacher, and read all about them and then download them for free.
