November Table Topics are ready for this month’s dinner table conversations! Each month, conversation starters are shared with you to use at the table to get your kids talking. This month’s table topics all focus on gratitude. Sit back and enjoy a nice fall meal and some great conversation around your dinner table.
Need some encouragement to have nightly dinner conversations? In a study done by the National Literacy Trust, they found that two-thirds of kids who talk with parents at the dinner table feel confident about speaking in public. Just one more reason to have great conversations at your table!
All you need to do is print the November Table Topics. Cut them apart. Place them in a decorative container and set it on your dinner table. Now, let’s get talking!
