We created the Talking Wheels activity to give our students a chance to socialize in our online group lessons. We select a subject from the Talking Wheels menu: - All About You * All About School * All About Piano * All About Today * All About Christmas
Then we spin that subject’s wheel to decide what we are going to talk about. I usually go first, and share something funny or exciting which motivates the students to share their answers/thoughts on the topic. This week, we will be spinning the “All About Christmas” wheel so everyone can share about the Christmas break.
This works really well - especially with our elementary school students who love to share about pretty much anything - especially if they haven’t practiced that week 😁. (Sometimes it works too well, and we have to be careful that the activity doesn’t take up too much time of the 40-minute lesson!) We find it’s important to encourage social interactions to build friendships and help the students to feel comfortable with each other.
