Question of the Day
Today I will be talking about a little class management tool called “Question of the Day.” This is being done in many classrooms around the world in different forms. I have Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies to thank for the inspiration behind posting questions for students to answer. I will share my unique way to implement it with primary students.
I had purchased a large drip pan that looks like a giant cookie sheet. I found mine at a car or hardware store (like Ace Hardware) and they also have them on Amazon HERE. The pan is an oil drip pan by Blitz. On the back of the pan, I put strips of double sided form tape and pushed it onto the bulletin board where I wanted it displayed.
I added words with bulletin board letters (Poppin’ Patterns by Creative Teaching Press) to say “? of the Day”, “Yes” and “No.”
Every morning the kids come in and go straight to the board. They read aloud the question for all to hear, since I have students who are learning how to read. They place their name cards under “yes” or “no” for their answer to the question.
They also use their name cards to indicate on the “In & Out” board (a cookie sheet on the wall) when they leave the room to go to the washroom, etc.
