Teaching your students to ask questions

Hello All,

In the last post about Chapters 3 and 4 we mentioned thick and thin questions. I found a great resource for teaching children questions. This website has book suggestions and then multiple mini lessons/activities for teaching them how to ask questions.  I haven't gone into it deep but it REALLY looks great I just wanted to share it:

I made some posters you can use in your classroom. There are 2 introductory slides you could use to teach from as well. Nothing spectacular but hope they are useful.  We must be deliberate about teaching them to think as they read not just decode the words but really dig in deep. Helping them understand asking thick questions will help them to do this.

Sure hope you like these. Please do leave comments. I enjoy your feedback.
