I "Mustache" You a Question: An Answering and Formulating Questions Game

The minute I saw this adorable clipart, I was ready to make this material!  I have so many students working on answering and formulating questions and very few appropriate and motivating materials to use with them!  So I'm bringing out my secret weapon: MUSTACHES!  

We have begun working with this Mustache You a Question set.  It includes:
~Question Go-Fish: Students work to match Y/N, Who, What, Where, When, and How questions with their answers. The cards are color and mustache-coordinated to easily spot a match!

~Answering: Students work to answer 72 Y/N, Who, What, Where, When, and How questions. The student with the most mustaches at the end of the game wins - But watch out for accidental shavings and get excited for quickly-growing mustaches!

 ~Formulating: Students work to formulate 42 Y/N, Who, What, Where, When, and How questions when given a topic. The student with the most mustaches at the end of the game wins - But watch out for accidental shavings and get excited for quickly-growing mustaches!

 ~Fauxstaches: A set of 8 printable mustaches is included. Just cut them out, laminate, and attach to a stick (Popsicle or otherwise) and use during the game for added hilarity! (Trust me, it's much cuter on the kids but dang FERPA won't let me show you their adorable mustache-clad photos)
You can grab this new material over at TeachersPayTeachers...

But, I'll be giving away a copy to my blog followers (see Rafflecopter below) as well as on my Facebook page.  Enter both and the best of luck to you!

  12. I would also love your mustache activities! My students choose mustaches as rewards for our whole school behavior program all the time! They would get a kick out of anything with a mustache on it.

  16. Fun idea - this adds some "imaginary play" to an older group of kids. (I'm thinking they could wear a variety of glasses to the mustache mix, and expand it to an activity in which we have to use careful and accurate descriptive language. Without giggling).

  23. I'm also new to your blog/TpT via Pinterest, so this mustache activity is topping my list, too. (*^_^*) As an EAL tutor, this is spot-on for my older students. I'll be exploring more of your posts!

  24. I love the mustache question/answer set. I know my kids would love it and I have a lot of kids this year working on understanding "wh" questions as well as several still targeting yes/no question. I get tired of my same old go to materials and this would be a great addition to my closet of activities!
