Which One Doesn't Belong? More Open-Ended Questions

You probably already know how I feel about the value of open-ended questions! If not, check out these posts and grab lots of freebies. You'll even get to see a video of them in action.

They have changed the way I teach so many subjects and I just can't help being excited about my newest product line:

These are a mixture of math and ELA slides that you can project on a screen. Once the kids see the slide and you ask, "Which one doesn't belong?" be prepared to see kids that...

  • love to analyze these problems.
  • persevere in solving them!
  • Engage in deep thinking.
  • justify their answers.
  • communicate their ideas and thoughts effectively. 

Let's take a look at one slide:

A few notes:

I'm always amazed at the answers the kids come up with.  Seriously...I'm blown away!

Many people leave reviews on similiar products and say they use them "every Tuesday."  I promise you they are SO  EASY and quick to use that one could be done daily.  That's what I do. I've used during Morning Meeting, projected one as kids are having snack, lining up, as a Do-Now, as a parner chat, etc.

The possibilities are endless!

Don't forget to grab several free Open-Ended Questions in my store. Perfect for Grades 1-2 but you know your class best!

Enjoy the FREEBIES!
