This activity was designed for working on fluent speech. However, it can be used also with social skills groups since it can elicit conversations.
In this file:
-Thumbs up/Thumbs down visual to help students rate own speech patterns
-Thumbs up/Thumbs down visual to help students rate own conversational skills
-Star speech: Students will pick a star card and respond to questions/conversation starters provided. If they pick the “thumbs up” card, they get an extra turn. If they pick the “thumbs down” card, they lose a turn. The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
-Reflective worksheet: students will share and write their feelings about good and bad speech/conversational/social experiences in the appropriate thumbs.
