These question cards will allow your students to work on higher order thinking skills as they use critical thinking and problem solving skills to discuss their answers. This packet includes 200 different questions that are perfect for classroom discussions. I use these every day during our Morning Meeting, but they are also perfect to place on a metal ring and use when we find ourselves with a couple of extra minutes. These higher order thinking questions will help your students to develop their oral language skills.
What does this product include?
This packet includes 200 question cards. I recommend printing and laminating the cards for every day use. I have also included writing pages if you would like to use these question cards as writing prompts.
Who is this product geared towards?
Discussion Question cards can be used in any grade level, but these are geared more towards elementary students. The older the students, the more in depth discussions you will be able to have.
How can I use this product in my classroom?
I use these Discussion Question cards every day during my Morning Meeting. I read the question and call on students to give me their answers. These can also be used as writing prompts or put into a writing center.
What are teachers saying about this product?
"These prompts have brought life back into our morning meetings! They even bring out the thoughts from quiet classmates. Some students are writing about their responses to these questions! Thanks for creating and sharing!" -Stacy
"These by far are one of my top 3 favorite purchases on TPT. I used this during my morning meeting and my students LOVED it. If there was ever a morning where we couldn't fit in our morning meeting they would ask if we would have time later in the day at least for the morning question. This helped build relationships in my classroom that words cannot even explain. It helped me to learn more about my students and my students learned things about each other that I believe was key in forming some of the friendships. I cannot thank you enough for your hard work in making this resource." -Amanda
