when to start a conversation

With Christmas coming up, everyone – parents, teachers, and kids alike – is busier than ever. This activity will help students STOP and THINK about whether different situations are a good time to start a conversation.

Your mom is wrapping presents, trying to feed the baby, and talking on the phone with your grandparents at the same time. Is this the best time to ask her to make you a snack?

Your teacher is trying to do the last reading testing on a group of kids before Christmas break. Is this the best time to tell her about your trip to see Santa this past weekend?

Students will evaluate different situations in this worksheet.
