If your school is anything like mine, Essential Questions have become...well essential as a part of your curriculum. With Common Core, students are required to think more deeply about the content they’re learning. I’ve created these questions with Kindergarten Common Core standards in mind. There are several questions per week for Reading, Writing, Math, and Science/SS.
I plan to copy the headers onto colored cardstock and hang them on the wall. Then each week I’ll post the sheet with the week’s Essential Questions next to/below each header. This way any adult in the building can come in and instantly make sure that I’m teaching a lesson that will provide an answer to the questions. It also makes planning my lessons a bit more easy, because I can clearly see the end result that I need to achieve!
