"Brain Feelers"

I found a similar idea on  Patton's Patch; however, I ran with her idea and made it my own!!! 
I LOVE how my "Brain Feelers" turned out!!! You know after you read a story and you want to ask your chillins all of these wonderful [comprehensional] questions....well now you have em' ready made for you in a jar!! Wha-hoo!! Pull a stick one at a time and ask random kiddos in your class! The mystery of which question and who you will call on will keep them engaged to the fullest! 







What you need:
*Cup
*Sticks
*Pom Pom (for the feelers)
*Labels or just a pen will do
*List of questions
*Hot glue

Enjoy!
