Conversation and Speaking Question Jar for Kids

The BEST classroom activity to increase speaking and fluency

If I could choose only one activity to have prepped and ready to use at all times- it would be this. Why? It’s just so functional. Once you do the minimal prep, its always at your fingertips.
  • Do you have 5 minutes left before the end of class? – Pull it out!
  • Do you need a quick activity to transition with? Pull it out!
  • Do you have a few fast finishers? Put them in a group and pull it out!
  • Do you just need your students to practice speaking? Pull it out!

ESL Kids Question Jar Activity – 150 questions


What’s so nice about having a Question jar/box like this in your classroom is the ease of use. It will literally be the best $4.25 ever spent. It doesn’t require much explanation. It’s already differentiated so you can use the correct level depending on your students skill set. did I mention that it’s super portable? If you travel from lesson to lesson or classroom to classroom, the strips are small enough that you can even keep them in your pocket! 🤣 (not recommended). There are 3 levels included in this set:
  1. Present Simple – 50 open and closed ended questions
  2. Past Simple – 50 questions using both regular and irregular verbs
  3. Present Perfect – 50 questions using How long, Have you ever

If you want to put them in boxes, I use these colored transparent plastic photo keeper boxes for just about everything. Flashcards, task cards, conversation cards – you name it! This activity fits perfectly in these boxes and you can easily grab the level you are looking for. (The above link is an affiliate link).
