A Ball for All – Activity #2: “Two Ways to Join In”

  • Grade 2
  • A Ball for All – Activity #2: “Two Ways to Join In”

Activity #2: “Two Ways to Join In”

This activity allows the students to practice the ideas of joining in from Activity #1. They will role-play and also write down the type of language that should be used when joining in within various contexts.


  • ‘Two Ways to Join In’ worksheet (provided)

Teacher Preparation:

  • Print each ‘Two Ways to Join In’ worksheet for each student.


Step by Step:

Step One: Have students sit in pairs and provide each student with the ‘Two Ways to Join In’ worksheet.

Step Two: Have students think of two different scenarios that would cause them to want to join in.

Step Three: In their pairs, Student A writes in the conversation bubble a “joining in” statement.

  • Example: “That game looks like fun!”

Step Four: Student B then writes a positive response in the second conversation bubble.

  • Example: “It is! Would you like to have a turn?”

Step Five: Students think of a new scenario and reverse roles.

  • Student B initially writes a possible “joining in” statement and Student A responds in a positive manner.


End Result:

Students have role-played scenarios where they had to develop their own positive ideas to joining in. They have also created a visual, written reminder of what these positive conversations should sound like.
