We worked on WHO questions last month, and worked on WHERE questions this month.

A WHERE question is asking about a PLACE. They are trickier than WHO or WHAT questions because the answers are not always as obvious. Often students associate people or things with places, and will answer questions with the person or thing instead.

Example: Where do you check out books? Answer: Mr. Tschacher! (the librarian).
No, Mr. Tschacher is a person. I need you to tell me a PLACE. Where do you check out books?
Answer: In the LIBRARY!

I used the book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, adapted from the chant. Each time the family gets to a new section of the story, they are in a new place.

WHERE are they now? In the forest. WHERE are they now? In the field. WHERE are they now? In the cave.

After reading the book, we played a board game (made with Boardmaker) based on the book. The students answered WHERE questions as they moved around the board.

On another day we played BINGO! The same basic BINGO rules, with 3×3 boards. I found the BINGO game on one of my favorite speech therapy websites, speakingofspeech.com, on their materials exchange.
