THANKS to Elke for this pdf of "The Question Hand"


The Question Hand is a useful classroom tool that helps students remember question word order.

  • Just hold up your hand to remind students as they try to form a question. In my class we chant, "Question word, x word, subject and verb" as we point to the appropriate fingers.
  • If there is no Question Word, fold your thumb over your palm.
  • If the student has forgotten to put the xword first, cross your index and middle fingers until they correct it.
  • It's best to post a newsprint version of the Question Hand every day.
