Question of the day for kids: a drip pan and a few simple materials helps kids love reading the different questions each school day!
Question of the Day: For KIDS!
How to DIY the Question of the Day for Kids
Purchase 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 of the day for kids 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.
