Conversations Starter Photo Cards

Conversations Starter Photo Cards


These Conversation Cards are a Montessori language activity that inspires real conversations with young children, builds vocabulary, and is enjoyable! These are tried-and-true in a Montessori classroom, but are also excellent for the home or traditional classroom.

Use these real photograph cards to help a quiet or hesitant child open up and say more, or use in a special education program to practice conversation courtesies and skills. Keep each of the sets of photo and matching question cards together in a basket, box, pouch, or with a rubber band. I like to keep this available to the children so anyone can ask to have a conversation with me, or another child in our classroom. You can keep all the cards out and together, or rotate if you wish.

A portion of all sales support Montessori in low income schools and Third World countries.
