Some of my FAVORITE questions include…
(1) I’m finished. Where do I put my paper?
(3) May I have a post-it for my book?
(4) I’m finished. What should I do now?
OHMYGOODNESS! After approximately eight weeks of school, nothing gets me more fired up inside than these questions. During the first month of school, I will totally answer your question. At this point in the year, not a chance.
I used binder rings to connect the questions and hung them in the room. Last Monday, I introduced the questions to my friends and we reviewed the answers to the 4 questions I chose to display. FRIENDS! IT IS MAGIC. LIKE WHOA! I know I am yelling, but IT’S MAGIC. It’s actually feels like my kids are 9 weeks into school and are trained – WAHHHHHWHOOOOOOOO!
Only 1 student has asked me ANY of the identified culprit questions in a week, and I just walked away. Another classmate helped the friend out after I was gone!
