20 Simple Why Question Pairs was developed to help my “little ones” learn to answer open-ended questions. The responses in this activity can be modified for your child’s grammatical structure needs. This packet provides the answers (pictures) for each question. You can start with visual cues using 2 pictures and expanding the number of pictures as the child progresses, eventually taking away the visual prompt. This is a perfect progress monitoring tool. Use the 40 open-ended What questions for associative word retrieval as well. Start by accepting 1 answer and increase as child progresses. Then expand to a higher level concept of negation, which can be a fun and silly activity.
