Asking or Telling???

Asking or Telling? Telling or Asking??? Omigoodness!!! Do your kiddos ever give you that "dazed & confused" look when they are trying to come up with an asking sentence??? Well let me tell ya... one minute they can do & the next minute they get all confused. They are sticking question marks anywhere & everywhere just to try to make their sentence into an asking sentence. Yikes! So, I decided that we needed to make an anchor chart that lists the words that asking sentences begin with. If you would like to download the lil chart above, just click {HERE} or up on the chart. Below is a pic of the large anchor chart that we made. {I'm not sure that this is a complete list, but it's what we came up with...a good start for firsties!}

I just had to add another pic of our cutie-patootie groundhogs. I finally got all of them hung up today and OMIword they are sooo funny! I love how they each have their own "look"!  Especially lovin the one that looks like it might be part monkey! lol They just crack me up!!!
One of my little guys was looking at his groundhog today and said, "What do ya think?... Did I over-do the eyebrows?" {What do ya think??? .....Na!!!}


  1. Your groundhogs ARE cutie-patootie!
    I feel ya on the whole asking or telling thing. I cannot believe we are STILL discussing this on a daily basis.

  8. I'm so glad to hear y'all are having the same problems getting periods and question marks across to your students. I feel like I have groundhog day everyday b/c I have to repeat and repeat and repeat.
