I am super excited about these new “wh” question task cards.  If you are like me, I always have students working on answering “wh” questions which is why I created these question cards.  The set includes “what”, “where”, “who”, “when”, and “why” cards.  Each set has 45 question cards in them.

For all of these sets; you can use different levels of prompting depending on your student’s skill level.  With some of my students, I show the student the card first and either I read the question or I have the student read the question if he/she can read.  This provides a visual support to assist with answering the question.

If the student still cannot answer the question I provide a verbal choice of 2 answers.  For example; “What does a rabbit eat?”….”a carrot or an apple”.  “Where do apples grow?”….”in the ground or on a tree”.

For my higher level students, I ask the question first before I show them the question card to see if the student can answer the question without the added visual support.  If the student cannot answer the question then I show him/her the question card to provide that extra visual support.  If the student still cannot answer that’s when I provide verbal choices for answers.

You could also use these cards at a work station and have the student write the answer to the question on a piece of paper in a complete sentence.  For example, “Why do you raise your hand?”  The student could write something such as “You raise your hand to answer a question.”

Lots of great practice answering “wh” questions with these task cards.  They have been super helpful when gathering progress monitoring data for my students or when I am assessing a new student.

If you are interested in these cards you can find them on TPT with the link “Wh- Question Task Cards”.
