Five Spare Minutes: W
(Wonder what it’s like to be a detective? Activity)
Who? What? When? Where? Why?
“I am thinking of something,” the teacher prompts.
“What does it do?” asks a student.
“When did you see one?” asks another student.
“Where does it live?” asks another.
“Who would use this or like this or want this?” asks another.
“Why were you thinking of this?” asks another.
This activity will encourage the students’ interest in and ability to ask detective style questions. All questions encouraged.
(Teaching, learning, giggling about, or illustrating a song is also a fun way to spend five minutes! The suggested tune for each of these ABC songs is the familiar tune, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Enjoy!)
Weasel, weather, whippoorwill,
Wishbone on my windowsill;
Winter, whisper, wallaby,
Walruses are fun to see.
"W" words, they are fun to learn
Now you find one, it's your turn!
