Thumbs Up To Star Speech: Fluency or Pragmatic Fun!


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.

  1. I think that we need to be careful about attaching positive descriptors to fluent speech and negative descriptors to stuttering, especially with students in late elementary school and older who will probably always stutter to some degree. A large part of our role is to support people who stutter and let them know that it's okay to stutter. We are just giving them tools to manage their stuttering when they choose to manage it.
