The new year is off to a wonderful start. Our classrooms are brimming with activities and excited learners. Stepping into a classroom is the one of the greatest joys of my day. I love sitting in a morning meeting, watching writers work on their craft, listening to stories and talking to children about their work or play. Technology has enabled teachers to communicate more often about classroom happenings, including the ability to post pictures and videos on class blogs - which has even allowed grandparents living out of state to take a peek in the school life of their grandchildren.
Parents have always tried to catch their own glimpses by asking, "How was your day?" The lucky families are regaled with details about the school day. More commonly the answer parents hear is, "Good," followed by limited information.

Many questions have the potential to create conversations that will give you with a little of the insight you are asking for. I thought I would share some of them on my blog for you to try in your own home. Hang them on your refrigerator and have fun with them! Leave a comment with other questions you use at your own house.
