The Conversation Starters - Things I Like to Do employs two stages for teaching.
The first stage teaches children to spontaneously answer questions while the second stage teaches children to inquire about other people and to initiate conversations.
Each set includes six different topics with a yellow card signifying the start of each new topic for immediate access.
Known as a "Speech Teacher's Dream," they're so convenient you can carry them in your pocket or clip them to your key ring and use them throughout the day. The front of each card poses a fun and interesting question about the topic. Flip it over and the beginning of the answer is on the back, encouraging children to fill in the blanks.
Simply brilliant technique to teach conversation skills!

Ask them a question and flip over the card so they see the beginning of the answer. This prompts children to fill in the blanks and encourages them to think of appropriate answers. It teaches children to be spontaneous and use different answers every time you use this pack.
Let children ask YOU the question and YOU fill in the blanks. This teaches children to inquire about other people. It teaches children to ask another question after getting a response.
