Use this free list of over 100 questions to help build relationships, integrate social emotional learning, and develop a positive class climate with your students! Strong, positive, and genuine relationships are a foundational element for success for all learners. This includes relationships between students as well as relationships between students and adults. Spend some extra time discussing positive qualities, friends, hopes for the future, and more with these questions. Getting to know your learners can help them open up, feel more prepared to take risks, and develop more positive feelings towards school in general.

Digital Version

A digital version for Google Slides is now included, making it easy for you to ask questions or share questions during online sessions.
