PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun, age-appropriate set of materials that can be used to teach young children how to ask questions (who, where, when, what, why, and how) when they are reading and writing. I created these materials after realizing that simply saying and posting the question words wasn't effective for our students just learning to read. Our new anchor charts, made with these visuals, are much more effective and have made the questions accessible to all the students.

The Common Core State Standards state that children, even as young as kindergarten children, are expected to ask and answer questions about the texts they are reading and hearing. We've taken this a step further by embedding it into our writing instruction as well. We model for our students how to ask questions as members of an audience when they are listening to their peers share their stories.

For each question in this packet, you'll find:

• A Title Speech Bubble (to post on an anchor chart)
• An Animal Cue Card (showing an animal whose name rhymes with the question word... very helpful for emerging readers)
• A Super Simple Song (written to the tune of "Bingo," gives kids repeated practice with the question word)
• A Purpose Poster (to aid you in your explicit instruction and modeling of each question word)
• Question Cards (multiple uses explained in the packet)

Click the free preview to see the full directions and a sample set for the question word "where."

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  September 9, 2013,  Buyer asked:
Is it possible for you to create a separate PDF page for EACH of the sticky note questions? So that would be 6 different pages. I use sticky notes all the time; but would like to be able to print one set (i.e. Setting - blue notes) at a time....rather than have to put different color sticky notes on each page that I am printing...

THank you!

Hi kgjbentley,

I won't be able to make those changes soon, but I'll add them to a "TPT To-Do" list that I keep for requests like yours. When the changes are made, the website will automatically notify you that an updated item has been provided.

Thank you,
Andrea Knight :)
