Answer My Question Game: Oral Practice of TTQA St. Patrick’s Day Edition



This special St. Patrick’s Day edition of our Answer My Question game is designed to provide oral practice of TTQA (Turn the Question Around); a prerequisite for written response. The ability to answer a question in a complete sentence is a basic skill required of all students. This holiday version was created to provide meaningful practice with this essential skill in a festive way.

The idea for this game stemmed from our work with students. When asking students to answer questions about a text, we noticed they exhibited difficulty at the most basic level. Often, students would provide a one-word answer or they would begin their answer with a question word (i.e. Q: What lesson did the character learn? A: How to be a friend). We found it necessary to “back it up” and break the skill down to its most basic component: distinguishing between asking and telling sentences (please refer to our Asking vs. Telling Game available as a free download in our TpT store). Once students were successful with the first step, we progressed to the slightly more challenging oral skill of TTQA.
