What a Character! Conversation Starters for Speech & Language

Oh my goodness! What a busy year this is turning out to be.  I'm not alone in that, right?  I feel as though I barely have time to sit at a computer to get my school paperwork done, never mind create new materials. But, I did get into a creative mood the other night!  I started looking at some clip-art I had purchased a while ago, but never did anything with and here's the result...


I had purchased some fairy tale clip-art from Scrappin' Doodles and thought to myself "What would happen if those fairy tales got mixed together (think the TV show "Once Upon a Time")?  What would their conversations look/sound like?  

Of course, as an SLP, I thought about the pragmatic implications of the conversations, but really there is so much more that could be targeted here! 

*Pragmatic language/Conversation skills
*Perspective Taking
*Grammar/Syntax/Semantics
*Carry-over for articulation, voice, fluency
*Narrative skills

In this free download, there are several mixed-up story conversation starters. Read the situations on the cards and have students discuss how the conversation might continue. You could also discuss the appropriateness of the actions of the characters within each scene. Here's a sample scene:


Head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to download!  Thanks for stopping by!
