"Get with a buddy and sit face to face. Tell them a story from your summer or your weekend when you were having lots of fun with your friends /whanau."
"We are going to put the timer on, choose one person to talk first and while the other person listens quietly. Be sure to listen carefully to your buddy and give them your full attention while they talk."
Get the video ready and count them in. Help them make sure that only one person talks for the whole minute.
"Ok, stop, now its the next persons turn."
Play the timer again.
When you bring the students back, you can ask them to share something their buddy talked about. This way we are teaching them to pay attention to each other as they talk.
