Teacher: "What was that story about?"
Student: "I like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches"
I know I'm not the only one. Asking and answering questions (in complete sentences) is quite a task for our littles. I created this packet to help my classroom and I hope that it can help yours too!
POSTERS! Each question word (who, what, when, where, why and how) have their own poster with examples of what is expected in their answers... They are bright, fun and pretty simple! My students loved them and used them quite often, especially when answering written comprehension questions!
3 different around the room type activities.
1. Students will walk around and read the question. There are 2 possible answers-only one is correct. They will record it on their recording sheet.
2. Students will walk around to look at cards with a picture and question on it. They will write the answer in a complete sentence on their recording sheet.
3. Students will work in reverse! They will walk around to find the pictures with a sentence (answer) on it. They will write the QUESTION that could be asked to get that answer!
There is also a quick memory matching game to use as practice in small groups... matching the answer (sentence) to a question word that could be used to ask a question to get that answer.
