Conversation Skills Workshop (Grades 2-7)

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

For many children it is easy to strike up a conversation or join one already in progress but for others engaging in small talk or starting a conversation can be challenging. Developing a child’s conversational skills and etiquette is important as it helps them build confidence, cultivate friendships, and understand social expectations. A child who is good at communicating verbally will often produce better written communication and interpret what they read more accurately, helping them in all areas of academics. Our 60-minute conversation skills workshop will cover some of the following topics: • How to start a conversation • Icebreakers to start a conversation • How to keep a conversation going • How to end a conversation • Topics to avoid • Active listening and not interrupting • Being respectful and non-judgmental • Rude and disrespectful body language and behavior • Giving and receiving compliments
