Free Speech Bubble Clipart and How to Use Them in Reading

Today I have a set of speech bubble graphics for you, and they are a forever freebie! I really hope they are useful to you.

Now, you may be asking yourself, how can I use these speech bubble graphics in my classroom? Teachers hate having a bunch of clipart they’ll never use. 

Speech Bubble: A speech bubble is a round or similar shape next to the head of a character in a cartoon. Inside of the speech bubble, the character’s words or thoughts are written.

While speech bubbles, aka speech balloons are great for using in any subject…because hopefully people are thinking and speaking in every subject… I LOVE using speech bubbles in the reading classroom.

Here are 3 great ways to use speech bubble clipart in a reading classroom:

  1. Talking Animals: Use speech bubbles in a resource that will allow nonspeaking characters, such as animals, to speak. Print the speech bubble and have students write the words the animal would say if they were able to talk.
  2. Crazy Comics: To summarize a book, have students create a comic strip that shows the details of what happened in the text. Students will use speech bubbles for the people or characters to talk.
  3. Say What? Create a printable sheet with about 6 speech bubbles on the page. As students come across questions they have about the text, they will write down their questions in the speech bubbles.

I would love to hear how you use these speech bubble graphics in your classroom, or how you use ANY speech bubbles in your lessons. Drop me a line in the comments below.
