Conversation Skills

Give children the opportunity for conversations with these great topics and starters!

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Charlotte Cushman and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

It’s important for students to learn to communicate with others, for social as well as functional reasons. This activity is designed to help students improve their expressive language skills, and to engage in appropriate social conversation. Lessons include English Language Arts, Social Skills, and Independent Living.

None required

Hint: Students can practice their conversation skills in natural settings – during snack time, break time, or lunchtime. Encourage students to engage in spontaneous conversations about their weekends, for example.
