Product Description
This is an activity I named A.O.T.D., or Answer of the Day. I taped off a small section of my whiteboard, and each morning students find the AOTD there. Their task is to, in their writing journals, craft a question to which the AOTD is the ONLY and EXACT correct answer. This forces them to think critically about what words to use, and narrow the topic of the question to a single possible answer. This activity takes only a few minutes a day, but can greatly improve students' ability to put their thoughts into words, as well as practicing critical thinking and writing skills. There are 180 words included - an entire school year's worth. The first week or two are very simple, later ones are more difficult and may have multiple meanings - which leads to more good discussion! Renee Ansley
