Asking Deep-Thinking Questions

This lesson started out with a quick discussion around the difference between quick questions and deep-thinking questions.

Then, we read a fun story that we all connected to.  We have all had the experience of feeling bored. In this story the main character asks a lot of deep-thinking questions.

After identifying the deep-thinking questions and discussing possible answers, we added Thinking Stems to our Inferencing anchor chart.

The next step was to begin writing our own questions. We used Padlet to collect and organize everyone’s questions.

Tomorrow we’ll use those sentence stems to write a paragraph to answer some of those questions!
