Get your kids talking!



Liz, a smart mom with a blog recently provided some clever questions to ask kids when you want to know about their day at school…and you never even have to say “school”!  

I'm going to try a few of these questions out tonight!

#1.  Where in the school do you hang out the most?  (Like a particular hall, classroom, parking lot, etc.)  Where in the school do you never hang out?
#2.  What would your school be better with?  What would your school be better without?
#3.  If you were a teacher what class would you teach?  What class would be the worst to teach?  Why?
#4.  What was the coolest (saddest, funniest, scariest) thing that you saw today.
#5.  Tell me one thing that you learned today.
#6.  If your day at school today was a movie what movie would it be?
#7.  Besides walking to their next classes, what else do people do in the halls in between classes?
#8.  Who do you think you could be nicer to?
#9.  What is your easiest class?  What is your hardest class?  OR  What class are your learning the most in?  What class are you learning the least in?
#10.  If they played music in the halls at school what would everyone want them to play over the loudspeaker?
#11.  If you could read minds what teachers mind would you read?  What classmates mind would you read?  Whose mind would you NOT want to read?
#12.  If today had a theme song what would it be?
#13.  Which class has your favorite group of students in it?  Which class has the worst group of students?
#14.  What do you think you should do more of at school?  What do you think you should do less of?
#15.  What are the top 3 (or 5) things that you hear people say in the halls?
#16.  What do you think the most important part of school is?
#17.  Tell me one question that you had today…even if it wasn’t answered….actually, especially if it wasn’t answered…
#18.  What class has the most cute boys/girls in it?
#19.  If an alien space ship landed at your school who would you like them to beam aboard and take back to their home planet?
#20.  Who did you help today?  Who helped you today?
#21.  If you could be invisible for the day at school what would you do?
#22.  What part of the day do you look forward to?  What part of the day do you dread?
#23.  What would you change about school lunch?
#24.  What classmate is most likely to be arrested, made president, become a millionaire, be in movies, let loose a flock of wild chickens in the library, etc.
#25.  If you had to go to only one class every day which class would it be?
