Let’s kick off the month with these fun November Would You Rather Questions for kids.
Do you have kids that are reluctant to participate? Or, do you have a room full of non-stop talkers? Either way, these fun themed questions will be your favorite solution.
Let’s first look at the benefits of Would You Rather questions and how to use them for classroom management.
In this blog post, you will find a list of questions and a resource to use throughout November.

How to Use Would You Rather Questions
Teachers and parents are using Would You Rather questions for many uses. While some keep the printed cards on hand for time fillers, others use the digital slides for planned language arts lessons.
- Time fillers: Keep a ring of question cards near-by to ask questions when you have a few minutes to fill.
- Transitioning: When transitioning the kids to line up, on/off the carpet, or to go to centers, call on several, or all, students to answer a question. This helps slow transitions down to prevent the mad rush.
- Morning Meetings: The questions are a great conversation starter.
- Brain Breaks
- Journal writing prompts
- Arrival or dismissal discussions
- Grouping kids: split the kids based on their answer, then pair off pulling from each group.
