Since the first week of school, I have been modeling and teaching my students Conversation Rules. Imagine that, second graders don't know how to take turns when speaking! Common Core standards include a section on Speaking and Listening skills. I created this little acronym to help my students remember what makes a good speaker and listener. We use these rules in all subjects and with any grade. I know some adults who could also use these rules! This freebie includes color and black and white versions.
