Question Crazy!

One struggle that my students have is punctuation.  Many of them just put a period and call it good.  Today I did a lesson focusing on just the question mark.  First, we found all of the words on our word wall that we knew were question words.  Next, I recorded all of the question words we could think of on a big poster that I had cut out in the shape of a question mark while the students recorded their words on a question mark on their paper.  (I wrote the words on the poster with the first letter capitalized to stress the fact that if a sentence begins with that word it will end with a question mark.)  During this whole time, I had the kids spell the question words they were giving me and use it in a sentence.  As a follow up, students independently completed a practice sheet (that is attached below).  The majority of students seemed to grasp the concept very well... now we'll see how they apply it in their writing!

(I recently saw the idea to put question words on a question mark shaped poster from Mrs. Carroll at The First Grade Parade.  Thanks for the awesome idea!)

  1. Love it. I always do a chart with question words but it isn't cute enough for the kids to keep going back to. Great simple! Can't wait to share more ideas with you! :)
