Many of the students I work with have trouble answering WH questions. For example, they might answer a question like “Where do you sleep?” by saying “Blue”. Or I might ask, “Who delivers your mail?” and they will answer “Mailbox”. These types of students often have trouble matching the WH word to their respective answers.
This interactive book will help teach your students how to answer WH questions. Your students will learn that “who” means a person, “where” means a place, and “what” means a thing. They will be practicing this skill with simple pictures, practicing everything in the here and now instead of answering hypothetical questions!
How does this book work?
Each page has a scene with a person and thing in it. For example, page 1 shows a library with a detective and a dog. Below each picture is a sentence strip with three interactive, Velcro ready boxes. For example (who) is in (where) with (what). Your students will find the correct “who” icon card and stick it to the “who” space (e.g. detective) and continue with where and what. Then, the sentence strip will describe the picture (e.g. A detective is in the library with a dog.)

This resource also comes with a Boom cards™️ version so that you can easily do the book without any printing or laminating!
If you’re looking to target WH questions using real pictures instead of clip art, check out my WH Questions with Real Pictures product. The visuals are the same throughout both products so they work incredibly well together!
If you plan to fully assemble this resource, you will need a binder, lamination, and Velcro to assemble. Or, use a binding machine.
