Create a “language environment” in the classroom with this durable set of 16 – 8″ x 8″ two-sided laminated cards, featuring photos from favorite MaryRuth Books titles. The reverse side of each card presents a series of open-ended questions about the image to prompt student observations, predictions, and inferences.

The Conversation Cards are ideal for sparking discussions and providing opportunities for students to practice listening and storytelling skills. Educators may also use the cards to assess a student’s background knowledge, a.k.a. Roaming Around the Known. Background knowledge is the foundation for additional learning and is essential for reading comprehension. The more a student already knows about a topic, the easier it will be for that student to understand and remember what they read about it.
