What educators are saying

Love this. I needed to have a variety of questions for evaluations, but use them daily. Thanks for sharing. They are easy to apply to any story or topic.
I used this when I was a mentor teacher to new teachers. It was great to teach them how to "bloom" up their lessons.


(Partially Editable- You can add your own questions.)

Incorporate Bloom's Taxonomy language and questioning in your daily lessons with this set of Bloom's Button Question Cards. Great to use with any fictional read aloud.

Have students take a button break. Students can choose a button color randomly (I'm using real buttons), and then answer a question that corresponds to that particular level of Bloom's Taxonomy.

They can answer the question orally, with a buddy or group, or even in a journal.

There are 9 questions for each of the 6 levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. There are also blank (editable) cards provided for you to add your own questions as you see fit. There is also a black line master available of the Button Chart, if you would like to have your students color it in and then place it in a journal/notebook to refer to throughout the year.

Black and white button cards are also provided. These can be used for individual or groups of students. Students can color the buttons themselves. This would work great if you wanted to have a set for each of your groups.

There is also a form provided for student to respond to the questions.
