Color My Conversation – Review & Giveaway

  1. I use a lot of ideas from Michelle Garcia Winner to work on social skills. Videos and role playing also help my students.

  2. Sara says:

    Honestly, I’m still trying to find a good material/activity to use with students that targets initiating conversations, making comments, asking questions, staying on topic, and responding to questions. I feel like there’s a lot out there that targets eye contact, body language, listening, perspective taking, etc., but not specifically those things I mentioned above. If you know of any, I’d love to hear what they are!

  3. Julie Strate says:

    Thanks Shannon,
    I am a new school SLP and love your blog and your TPT materials.
    Thanks, Julie

  4. Judy Hale says:

    I saw this product earlier this year at my state’s annual convention, and it looked great, but I had no budget for it. I do use a lot of Michelle Garcia Winner’s stuff in my social groups, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Tilly and Frank stories from SuperPower Speech on TpT–those are GREAT with the younger kids and the kids in the Special Day Classes.

  5. Lindsey says:

    Another SLP in my district bought a game called “Should I or Shouldn’t I” It presents situations or comments and requires students to rate the kind of thoughts another person might have about them as a result (Angry, Annoyed, Wacky, OK, or Good). The discussions it generates is really great, kids love the voting aspect, and I can get a quick assessment of where kids are socially. Can’t wait to use it more and maybe get my own copy This program looks awesome! Conversation skills are rough to work on sometimes!

  6. Brianna says:

    This seems like a great product that I could use with several of my students. I have recently gotten several students with autism who could really benefit from work on social skills particularly conversations!

  7. Helen Wagner says:

    I love this resource! I don’t have much for social skills…a few apps and social stories and a Take 5 game. We could really use this!

  8. Elizabeth McGreavy says:

    I love the multi sensory component of this program!

  9. Jen K says:

    I don’t have a lot for social skills, but I do have your TPT product Size of the Problem Detectives and I love that one.

  10. Raelynne Lorenz says:

    Wow! This looks really interesting and I think some of my students might like this. I really don’t have much in terms of an actual curriculum. This might be the ticket.

  11. Patricia says:

    I don’t have much social skills materials but some of my favorite to use have been Michelle Garcia Winners things or using the IPad. I try to target socials skills by creating social stories and/or using apps

  12. Bethany says:

    This looks awesome for my social groups! Thanks!

  13. Madelyn says:

    This product looks promising! I try to incorporate social skills in with all activities. We also simulate typical events of daily life to practice appropriate use of language.

  14. Jen says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I have so many kids on my caseload that could benefit from this. My fingers are crossed : )

  15. Kim Hovey says:

    Honestly, there’s nothing like using a teachable moment for in-the-moment social skills training.

  16. Shara Barlage Kuehl says:

    I love to use social thinking concepts and vocabulary and incorporate a variety of activities and resources that I have come up with on my own or have purchased from TpT to practice skills.

  17. Jordan says:

    I like the social thinking materials as well as videos and role playing. I use a balance a lot now which I learned from a recent training to show balance in conversations and other social skill areas! Always looking for new materials to target social skills in a natural and motivating way. This looks great!

  18. Jill S says:

    Thanks so much for reviewing and sharing this! I work primarily with preschoolers and tend to use a smorgasbord of resources to target social skills,but do nor havw any specivic curriculum I follow. Even my kiddos who are not diagnosed with any social issues can always use help in the social skills arena! I think this would be a great resource to add to my bag of tricks!

  19. Debbie says:

    I have social skills videos for the iPad but nothing tangible. This looks great as it uses colors for teaching and reminds me of EET in that respect, which the kids love because of the associations they can make and carry over.

  20. Michelle says:

    This is such a great giveaway! To be honest, I’m still trying to find materials and activities to target social skills. I definitely use items I find on Teachers Pay Teachers along with a few games that are already at my school.

  21. Anne says:

    HOnestly, I haven’t targeted social skills much in my very short career!! Our social worker and psych take care of most of the social skill goals, although I am hoping to develop some lunch bunch groups with them to address pragmatics. This looks like a great program to incorporate in some of the lessons I’m planning!

  22. Kate B. says:

    Love this program! I am in need of a new social skills program and this seems to fit the bill! Thanks so very much for your post!

  23. Dani Kaplan says:

    Most of my social skills products come from TpT!! šŸ™‚

  24. Sharon Swindell says:

    These materials look very interesting. I have used video clips or the ipad app, Conversation Builder, with several of my students with success.

  25. I love this program and have seen it used with great success because it makes sense to our kids! Thanks for sharing this!

  26. Betsy says:

    I really like the looks of Nicole Allison’s social group curriculum. I just purchased it so haven’t tried it yet. I also use lots of super power speech’s social items. My main go to in the past is Michelle Garcia’s superflex curriculum.

  27. Lena Henley says:

    Currently, I do not have materials for social skills. So, I hope I win!!

  28. Megan Fraser says:

    One of my favorites is your Size of the Problem Detectives! The kids have a blast. This program also looks great. Sometimes I struggle with teaching abstract concepts and these materials definitely help! Thanks for reviewing!

  29. Jenni says:

    I love Michelle Garcia Winners products.

  30. Allison says:

    We are starting up a Social Skills group and I think this tool would be great in a group setting!

  31. Erin says:

    I have not heard too much about this program, but it looks great! I like that it gets kids up and moving. I have used a lot of the Michelle Garcia Winner products, but am always looking for new things too!

  32. Krista says:

    I like to use a few apps for social skills such as social express.

  33. Lindsay says:

    So excited!!!

  34. I use a variety of materials, games, apps, role-playing and videos. Lean a lot on Social Thinking materials.

  35. Cassandra S. says:

    This looks like a great tool to add to my therapy materials! I use a lot of Michelle Garcia Winner ideas/approaches. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

  36. Jamie says:

    Looks promising!

  37. Sarah says:

    I have been looking to get this for my classroom! Such a neat tool to use that will get kids engaged.

  38. Sarah says:

    I use self made products and programs by Michelle Garcia Winner. I’d love to try this one.

  39. Kristen says:

    Michelle Garcia Winner is also a favorite of mine.

    At my school, we often put the students’ pictures on popsicle sticks. Then, students have to go find the person they picked and ask them a predetermined question after they greet them.

  40. Angela says:

    I use a few workbooks, visual supports & a couple of apps to work on social skills. It would be such a blessing to add this resource to my social skills materials in speech therapy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. Amy says:

    I have been using many of MGW’s concepts as well! I am in a high school part of the week and our building has both a local community college campus as well as a satellite clinic from one of our area’s top medical groups housed there. These are two really great places/resources to help target social skills in very functional ways!
