Do you do “Question of the Day?”
If not, you’re missing out on a terrific opportunity to reinforce math skills
such as graphing, tally marks, greater & less than
, as well as counting, and number recognition
. All this in less than 5 minutes! Woo Hoo!
Children are eager to give their opinion. Doing so, builds confidence
, which leads to self-esteem
Besides all these advantages, a Question of the Day allows students a fun way to practice writing their name
When everyone’s name is displayed on the white board, it’s also a way children learn to read and recognize their classmates’ names as well.
For me, the best part, is getting to know each other better through sharing.
With all this in mind I designed a Question of the Day packet
The packet includes
* An explanation
of how I set up my Question of the Day activities
* A question mark poster
to make a display with.
* Yes and a No posters
you can also use in your display
* A Yes/No graphing sheet
* 5 things I’d say yes to writing prompt
* 5 things I’d say no to
* Yes-No I have an opinion trace & write worksheet
* Clipboard Tally Worksheet for girls
* Clipboard Tally Worksheet for boys
* A list of 485 Yes or No questions
, categorized seasonally
, so you don’t have to wrack your brain in the morning thinking of something, or wondering if you’ve already asked that question.
Simply run off the pages, laminate & check off the ones you’ve done. (Reuse every year)
I use a permanent marker, so that my check marks don’t rub off, and then at the end of the year I use a Mr. Clean eraser
to rub them off. Works like a charm!
I've listed this for grade levels PK-2nd; however the questions
are certainly appropriate for older students
as well, for children of all ages enjoy sharing their opinions.
A writing prompt of "why?" could follow up their answer.
I’m Diane from from Teach With Me, hoping that your kiddos enjoy Question of the Day as much as mine do.
