Week #4: Including Others

Theme: Including others. It's time to toss up your table and 'Mix it up'. Toss up your lunch table to include others and celebrate differences. Continue to learn about and practice conversation skills with someone new. Make a new friend in the cafeteria.

Goals:

  1. Students continue learn about how to have a positive mealtime conversation and have an opportunity to practice these skills with someone new. Students are randomly assigned to different tables.
  2. Cafeteria Supervisors continue to learn about how to model and teach mealtime conversation skills.

Make: Conversation Cube - print out on cardstock or regular paper; form into cube; make 1 per table.
