Owen tries to tell Johnny about his trip to Florida but Johnny doesn’t let Owen speak. Johnny talks over him which makes Owen feel bad. Johnny needs to remember to take turns in conversation.
Use Taking Turns in Conversation
This video focuses on what can happen if you do all the talking. We show the consequence that it will make others feel bad or annoyed. We also introduce the idea that conversations are like playing catch. You have to go back and forth each turn. I’ve even had students throw a ball back to forth to get the idea. I usually tell them that the ball will drop if the conversation starts. The visual really helps them understand this idea.
