Kids Wednesday: How to Learn More About Your Kids Day at School

I sent my little man to kindergarten this year and it seems like he has lost the ability to take about his day.  I used to pick him up at preschool and I would get the play by play of everything that happened including snack, work time and what everyone said during the day.  I didn't have to prompt him to get information, I just had to try to stop him long enough to get him out of the car when we got home because he was still talking.  Now either the longer day or coming home on the bus, I am hearing nothing about his day. 

Do you want some solutions to this problem??  Check out this post about great questions!!

I usually use some of the basic questions to get past only hearing about lunch or recess like what is one thing that you learned today or one thing that your teacher taught you. 

My favorites are:

#6.  If I called your teacher tonight what would she tell me about you?

#12.  If an alien spaceship came to your class and beamed up someone who would you want them to take?

I don't know if I would want to know the answers to those but they might lead to some interesting dinner conversations!  Let me know which ones are your favorites and make an effort to ask your kids something a little different and you might get an interesting answer!!!
