As a teacher, I know the importance of talking to my child about their day, but I find that sometimes I even resort to the dreaded…"how was your day?" and am often met with a one or two word answer. Or I'm asking the same questions over and over again. Help your parents engage in a thoughtful conversation with their child by providing them with this list of open-ended questions to start the conversation flowing.

This would be perfect to send home at the beginning of the year or at Back to School night. Suggest that the parent keep this list of questions handy all year long - in the car, near the kitchen counter or in another place it can be pulled out on a daily basis.

This now includes a Spanish version. A big thank you to Juliana Suarez from Kinder Bilingue for translating this product.
