Oral language skills are a fundamental part of the literacy puzzle. These Question of the Day prompts were designed for use during morning meeting to help build students' oral language skills while providing scaffolding for Restate the Question practice.

Students can’t read or write what they can’t say orally. Using classroom dialogue and discussion is an often under-utilized component of our day. Question of the Day helps even young students develop skills needed to write in complete sentences both in their own writing and while answering open-ended reading comprehension questions. Through daily practice with the Question of the Day, restating the question becomes seamless for students.

Question of the Day progresses from easier and shorter questions to more complex multi-part responses. Question types are spiraled throughout the year so application of previously practiced skills are included. The first 100 questions are written in an intentional sequence, giving students many opportunities to work with a question type before moving on to another. New question types are given with sentence frames to help support students in learning to restate the question in their answer.

The beginning of the year includes many personal questions, designed with building community in mind. The first 100 questions, organized by type, are included below.

The dialogue and discussions are perfect to start your day during morning meeting or calendar, or even as you close out your day.
