Ping Pong Balls

Hello world,
     I'm back with another random post. I recently discovered a pack of six ping-pong balls for .25 cents at Goodwill. I couldn't resist the purchase after being so inspired by all of the creative ideas on pinterest. Well, I am using them for wh- questions. I let the kids reach into a bowl with their eyes closed and come up with a question based on our reading. The kids enjoy the surprise and I enjoy getting them motivated.

I've also developed a wh- question word chant. I thought I would share with all of you.

Who is for people like you and me
What is for things like a ball or a toy
Where is for places like a school or a hospital
When is for time, just look at a clock

I haven't worked on lines for why & how just yet as my kids aren't ready for those questions.

Until next time...............
