Today was officially J’s first day of school. I can’t wait to pick her up to ask her how her day was just so she can reply, “good.” Does this happen to you? You want to know what your kids have been up to in school and all you get is a one word answer?
Luckily for me, my daughter’s school shared a list of questions that you can ask your kids to get them to talk about their day at school that I am sharing with you. Use them to spark a conversation and find out how their day really went at school.
- What was the best thing that happened at school today?
- Tell me something that made you laugh today?
- Where is the coolest place at your school?
- How did you help someone today?
- How did someone help you today?
- When were you the happiest today?
- Who would you like to play with at recess that you’ve never played with before?
- Who in your class do you think you could be nicer to?
- Who is the funniest person in your class? Why is he/she so funny?
- What was your favorite part of lunch or recess?
- What do you hope to accomplish at school tomorrow?
- What is the first thing that you’d like to do at school tomorrow?
Have any other questions to add to this list?
