My Teachable Minute tip for today?

Ask kids questions that require MORE than a YES or a NO response. You will be amazed at how kids ‘open up’ to you in new and wonderful ways. Here are a few ‘general’ questions to give you an idea of what I mean . . . hope they help!

What is happening today?

How can I help make this day better for you?

What did you discover in school today?

How come you’re feeling that way?

Questions are important because they help us learn more, share more, and think more!
