Topic Closure - Parent 2



Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of topic closure.

Definition: Topic closure means ending a conversation with someone in a polite manner using a typical farewell phrase before walking away from the conversation.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • Topic closure is necessary when you signal a friend, a peer, or a family member that a conversation has ended.
  • How do you know when a conversation has ended?
  • Name some appropriate topic closers. Examples: Bye, see you later, I gotta go.


Describe a situation when you or someone you know left a conversation before it was finished. Be sure to share how you felt.
