CLL1 – The child will listen to conversations and demonstrate comprehension.
CLL1.4a Listens and responds on topic to conversations and group discussions for an extended period.

WSO: Gains meaning by listening. Follows rules for conversation.

Activities: Classroom discussions.  From large group to small group, make time to sit down with your students and discuss topics of interest or upcoming events.

Modeling.  Modeling can happen with you and your fellow teacher.  Give the students a buzzer to pass for them to buzz you if you interrupt or fail to follow conversation etiquette.

Puppets.  Instead of a puppet show, have a puppet talk.  Let your students create and carry a conversation for their puppets.

Telephone.  Pair students up and give each pair one telephone.  Just like we take turns in conversation without interrupting, they must wait until they have the phone to talk to their friend going back and forth in conversation.

Inferential storytelling.  Print, cut, and laminate some speech bubbles.  Using posters or photographs with two or more people in them, have your students dictate the possible conversation for you to write into the bubbles.

I am missing a fee from Cognitive, Personal and Social, and one other area but will attempt to catch up on these over the Christmas Break to publish once again. I hope you have found these helpful!
