At the beginning of the year as a part of my literacy block, the kids and I work on Question, Answer, Relationship (QAR). In third grade most of the types of questions are pretty early elementary such as the right there, think and search and on my own questions. The questions we really focus on throughout the school year are the author and me type. However, before we put a huge impact on that we review all question types.
This powerpoint takes the kids through a story asking questions and modeling for the kids the question answer relationship. I really try to pretend I am revealing every teachers secret so they get really into it :) Enjoy!
