After having finished up two weeks of my transportation theme last week I find myself realizing that I really need to crank out a bunch more questions for my Question of the Day Bundle, especially since I need the questions for my classroom fairly soon. So I started with some space themed questions even though we are not doing a space theme this year at my school.
When making my questions I really like to incorporate real life photos so that the questions are interesting as well as possibly showing my students something they have not seen before. I do have a couple students who can read a bit, but for the most part my assistant or I read the question of the day to our students. This year I don’t seem to have too many students who just want to answer what other students are choosing. Last year I had a few who always wanted their names to be next to a buddy’s name, regardless of the answer choices.
One of the student jobs in our classroom is the Question of the Day Helper. That person goes over to the pocket chart and counts the responses and reports them to the circle so that we can discuss them. We talk about most, least, unanimous, and ties. Just today we had a unanimous answer, although it would not have been if all of my students had been there since the question was about whether there was a letter H in anyone’s name.
I just finished up another set of questions for this bundle, with space, hibernation, friends, Valentine’s, and healthy habit themed questions. Since I am very concerned with making sure that the photos and graphics do not print poorly, the latest version of the bundle includes a link to a Dropbox file with set six in it.
