Goal: Client will answer where questions about various places in the community.
Domains: Language, Academics

Many kids struggle answering “WH” questions: Who? Where? What? When? Why? The first three of these (who, where, what) are commonly answered with nouns (person, place, thing). What? was previously addressed with What Do You Use? This project is about places.

Where Do You Go? teaches 16 places frequently found in a community: airport, bank, barber shop, bathroom, drugstore, fire station, gas station, grocery store, hardware store, library, playground, pool, post office, stadium, toy store, and zoo.

Disclaimer: Where questions can also be answered with prepositions, on, off, in, out, over, under, etc. but these will be addressed in a different project.

The chorus of the song establishes that the answers to Where questions are Places, as opposed to What questions answered with Things or Who questions answered with People. Each question is repeated twice for students who need that processing time or who may have deficits in attention. The questions are structured so that the key nouns are the last words of the questions and therefore the last words heard before the student needs to answer. … Toilet? Bathroom! … Book? Library! …Swing? Playground! …Animals? Zoo!

The sentence starter “I go to the” allows verbal students to answer in a complete sentence and work on increasing length of utterance in a structured format. It also reinforces the fact that we go to places.

There are a total of 16 Where questions. These are split into 4 videos, 4 questions per video. Each of these videos come in 3 versions for a total of 12 videos. 4 are teaching videos – the correct answers are sung and shown. 4 are receptive videos – the student can answer verbally or by pointing to a field of 4 potential answers. 4 are expressive videos – no answer choices are given and the child must answer verbally.

Songs are included with the download, 2 songs corresponding to each of the 4 sets of 4 questions, one with sung answers and one with the answers removed. There are also 3 songs with the question vocals removed, so that you can ask 4, 8, or 16 questions of your choosing.

The goal is for students to progress through the various versions of the videos and songs. You may begin with the teaching videos to allow students to get familiar with the structure of the song and the various questions and answers. Depending on the child you are working with, you may utilize the included question flashcards, answer visuals, or eventually even reach the point where no visual supports are needed. The hope is that after these questions are mastered, students will be able to answer novel where questions.
