A set of 123 beautiful, bright, colourful cards all featuring Indigenous Australian characters, which can be used to encourage speaking and writing. The conversation cards are also popular with counsellors, as therapy cards.
The cards represent different settings, evoke different emotions and inspire different ideas.
They are useful as a stimulus for speaking, or writing, or both. Margaret frequently hands out 5 or 6 to each student, leaving a handful in the middle of the group, which they can use as ‘swop cards’ if they don’t like the ones they have been dealt.
They then tell a story orally, using those cards, which they subsequently write or type up.
There are many uses for these cards – another important one is as therapy cards.
