I have my Year 2 class sat on the carpet in set places (mixed-ability purposes) during the input. Every time I ask for them to share ideas with their carpet partner there are a large number of children who will sit their and say nothing to anyone. I had to change their carpet spaces on Friday as their were some issues with a few children's behaviour that I had to address but I also felt that it might help the situation; sadly, that's not been the case. Is it first week blues and should I wait a while? Is there a good way to promote conversation through competition (or any other way)?
