Another perk to doing these questions right at the beginning, is I can have something for my students to do if class doesn't start on time, or if all students aren't ready to go right away. I have journal options including drawing, writing one word, or writing sentences that students can complete while they wait.
I display the question on the board and pick a student to lead the question of the day. This student then goes around and asks each student what they like. Then, that student moves each student's picture under their answer.
Don't just take my word for it though! Here's what other teachers have to say about these daily questions:
Laura M: "This is literally just what I needed for morning work right before our morning meeting. Thank you! It allows me to get set up while my students are engaged and not making mistakes on a worksheet!"
Special Kiddos: "My students love the question of the day now. I use it during circle time and I get a fly swatter and each student gets a turn to hit the choice given to them, they love that part. I make them repeat the full sentence to me to work on speech. Awesome!!"
this teach LOVES SPEECH: "Absolutely love this product! So often we focus on right and wrong answers ... I'm excited to learn more about my students by asking questions that I don't know the answer to and there is no right or wrong answer. Great product!"
CKspeechlanguage: "Love this product for encouraging independent question answering. Perfect for a variety of kids ranging from gen ed preschool to High School students with special needs. Thank you!"
The Speech Spaniel: "These were wonderful both as a speech "warm-up" with my life-skills students as well as the full activity for the session."
