Do you want your students to have deeper, and more meaningful conversations? I know that I DO!!! Whether you have English Language Learners OR timid students, Collaborative Conversation Sticks are a great idea. I created this product to help my students master the CCSS for both Speaking & Listening which state that students need to be able to: “engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse partners on grade-level topics and texts, building on other’s ideas and expressing their own clearly.”
These 30 Sentence Stem sticks will provide your students, and mine, support to engage in academic conversations. If you haven't used "sentence stems" before… then they will help your student become Active Participants in group discussions during Language Arts. They will also hold the students accountable to contributing and foster critical thinking. The response starters and prompts will focus the academic conversation and keep the students on-topic.
Simply Print, Laminate and attach these 30 sentence stems to a popsicle stick so your students can grab them while working in groups.
