The Big Question
Our language arts curriculum is divided in themed units and each unit has a big question that generates discussion about the theme. Then each week has a question. These are introduced in the following manner:
Teacher: Hey class, I want to tell you about the Big Question.
Students: What! The big question?(with arms out, looking surprised)
Teacher: Yeah! The big question!
Students: All right!(with a sweep of the arm across the front like the lollipop guild munchkins)
Teacher then goes on to introduce/explain the Big Question.
The question of the week goes as follows:
Teacher: Hey class, I want to tell you about the Question of the Week.
Students: What! The Question of the Week?!(looking surprised again)
Teacher: Yeah! The Question of the Week!
Students: Okie-Dokie!(giving the OK sign like Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat.)
This week's question of the week is, "Who is in our family?" So we listen to this way-cool song from The Roots on Yo Gabba Gabba. Now that's FUN! Don't tell anyone.
