Asking Good Questions - Parent 2

Foundational

Parents

Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of asking good questions during conversations with friends and others.

Definition: The purpose of asking a good question while having a conversation is to gather information or tell you something you didn’t already know. Asking a good question is also helpful in keeping the conversation relevant and enjoyable.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What is a question?
  • Why do we ask questions?
  • How or when should we ask questions?
  • How do questions assist us in developing better conversations?
  • Is a conversation enjoyable when someone asks a question that is unrelated to the topic being discussed?

Activity

Brainstorm three good questions you could ask an adult about their day.
