25 Ways to Ask, “How was your day?”

Just about every child will have a one word answer to “How was school?” If you’d like to hear more, ask about something the child cares about.  
1. Who did you play with at recess?
2. Did you learn any new words?
3. What are you reading?
4. Do you have any art on the wall?
5. What is something you did today that you’d love to do every day?
6. Was anyone away from school?
7. Teach me something you learned.
8. Do you have any papers for me to see?
9. Was everyone good on the bus?
10. Did everyone have someone to play with?
11. What made your teacher smile?
12. Did anything make your teacher frown?
13. What made you feel happy?
14. Did anything make you feel sad?
15. Did you give anyone a hug?
16. What did you find difficult?
17. Did you see anyone feeling sad?
18. What is your favorite word right now?
19. Who did you have lunch with?
20. Did anything make you feel worried?
21. What was the hardest part of your day?
23. Tell me something that made you laugh.
24. Did anything make you feel frustrated?
