Answer My Question Game: Oral Practice of TTQA Valentine’s Day Edition



This Valentine’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. Once students were successful with the first step, we progressed to the slightly more challenging oral skill of TTQA.
