25 Pages

Grade Level(s): K, 1, 2, 3

PDF File/Format


Product Description

Set your students up for successful conversations by explicitly teaching them how to TALK! This is a perfect way to kick off your back-to-school lessons- as accountable talk is needed in all subject areas!

This resource includes “repeat after me” slides for your students to chant every day so that they know what it means to talk, listen, and learn from their partners.


From there, 20 slides can be used to prompt your students to talk in pairs, trios, or quads. These prompts are all non-academic topics so the focus can just be on the art of listening, learning, and holding a successful conversation. These slides will get you through the first month of school!
