Student Instructions

Answering "What" Questions

1. Click on the add button. 2. Use a drawing tool to mark the right answer. 3. Do all 12 pages. (Please show what your child can do independently before helping them.) 4. Click on the check to save to your journal. Simplify: * If your child is not ready to answer questions verbally, let them point to the correct picture. * If your child is not ready to answer "what" questions at all, have them label the items or ask them to touch one that you name. Example: "Show me the shoe?" * If your child is not ready to label, you label the pictures while they watch. Exposure to vocabulary is great! Extend: * Ask "what" questions about each picture on the page, not the question listed. Example, "What do you wear on your feat?" or "What do we ride in?" * Ask more open-ended questions about the pictures on each page. Example: "What are shoes for?" or "What do we do with a car?" * Have your child answer (and ask) more "what" questions throughout the day. Example, "We're having soup for dinner. What should we use to eat it with?" Or make it a guessing game; "I'm thinking of something we use to eat soup, what is it?" Learning Potentials (Core Standards): Begin to ask and answer simple questions (for example, who, what, where) Begin to understand and use nouns, verbs, prepositions, and pronouns.
