Question of the Day

Enjoy a free resource for your classroom.

Use these printable question of the day cards as a writing prompt to pair up students and encourage new friendships or as an ice breaker to spur discussion in the classroom. This free download includes 10 question of the day cards. For best results, print on white cardstock and use a paper cutter to trim down into individual cards.

Need some inspiration on how to use these Question of the Day printable cards? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Free Writing Practice

Use the questions as a daily warmup. Set a timer for 20 minutes. Allow students to pick a card. Use it as a prompt for a daily free writing activity. Instruct students to keep writing until the timer goes off.

Get to Know You Activity

This is an excellent activity for the beginning of the school year when students are still making friends. This will allow them to get to know one another. Pair students up with a stack of questions. Then, ask them to take turns asking each other the questions.

Morning Icebreaker

Combat the morning drag with a lively discussion that everyone can participate in. Pull a card and discuss answers as an entire class.

Attendance Check

Post a card on the whiteboard each morning with a list of each student’s name below it. Have each student write their answer next to their name. This is a fun way for them to mark their attendance for the day.

Instill Math Skills

Collect answers and graph similar responses in a pie chart or bar graph to teach basic math skills. To make things easier, you can provide multiple-choice answers to open-ended questions.

Become a Teacher. Change Lives.
