SMART RESOURCE | A visual way of demonstrating the simple art of conversation to young children. Speaking frames in the form of speech bubbles give students examples of greeting and fare welling people in a polite and friendly manner.

Also there is a blank face with speech bubble; the students can draw themselves using polite conversation. Display the students work in a manner that forms a conversation.
SMART RESOURCE | The activity cards give every day scenarios for different social conventions. The students discuss what they would say in a given situation when greeting, inviting, asking permission and apologising. The resource includes two sets of cards- colour and white background. These can be used for display or student cards. There is an activity sheet with speech bubbles for the students to complete in a conversation style and blank cards for writing further scenarios. These could be collaboratively written with the class and added to the collection of cards.
