Restating the question

Does anyone have any worksheets or ideas to help restate the question when answering a question? I am about to pull my hair out and cannot seem to find anything in web searches. Thanks so much!

I have students cross out the questioning words and then rewrite whatever is left as their sentence starter.

Example question: Where does the story take place?

I ask the students what the questioning words are. (Where does)
I have them draw a line through those words.

They start their response with what is left, remembering a capital letter.

The story takes place...

It seems to be helping my students this year. Good luck.

but mine have to practice this all year to get the habit established. I make them answer all their social studies and science questions like this. By the end of the year even the less mature students seem to have it. Thank you DoxieTeacher, I love the worksheet. My students will be seeing it real soon.

I have used the model Better Answers by Ardith Cole successfully.
I believe there is a preview of the book at Stenhouse Publishers.

Better Answers Formula

We use the Better Answers Formula also. Our district used this book as a book study a few years ago. We then, created a scope and sequence for each level....At the first grade level I am responsible for modeling the written version of the better answers formula. Kdg works on oral answers, etc. Good book....very thin....easy reading..you should check into it...

my entire district uses the acronym TAG:

Turn the Question into a statement
Answer the Question
Give Details

If the question is:

What did you eat for breakfast this morning?

a child could answer:

This morning at breakfast I ate a blueberry muffin. It was the kind my mom likes to get at the bakery around the corner.

or they could answer:

This morning I didn't eat breakfast. That is why I am so hungry now! When I don't eat breakfast, I have a hard time concentrating in school.
