Ask the children “What do dinosaurs say?” and they will all shout a big “Roar!” So I plan ahead for when I really want to ask a question like this:)

This may seem silly but I do actually think about what questions I want to ask and when I want to ask them…

I love to ask questions while children are at play or creating but I don’t want to interrupt their natural play or conversations so I wait until a good opportunity presents itself….

While these children were creating their dinosaurs, I decided it was a good time to ask, “What do dinosaurs say?”

I also like to ask questions when I am in circle time. I want to ask questions that invite children to think a bit before they answer. Today, the question was “what do you think dinosaurs look like?”

And when I ask a question, I know that I need to be ready for the kind of response I might get or I need to be patient and give time for children to formulate an answer and not feel rushed…

I am amazed at how much these kids actually know about dinosaurs! Before making these shapely dinosaurs, I had a set of my own shapes and I asked the children how they thought I could use them to make a dinosaur…

By asking questions such as “What shape can I use for a head?” – the children would then share their ideas with me of how the shapes could be used for the different parts of the dinosaur…

Then I sent the children off to try and make a dinosaur of their very own…
