Need your ideas, please!

Tomorrow, I will be starting a new activity in my four-year-old class, which will be ongoing throughout the year. Because I have a more advanced group this year, with one reader and a couple others who are almost ready, I wanted to do something to challenge them and also help them get to know each other better. Therefore, we will be adding the "Question of the Day" to our morning routine. I have a prepared chart with a 'yes' column and a 'no' column. I also have an area at the top, which is where I will clip on a new question each day. The children will each have a clothespin with their name on it, with which to answer the question (by clipping it onto the correct column).

So, here's where I need your help...I need to come up with a bunch of yes/no questions to ask the kids. Any and every idea is appreciated...
My first two that I have ready for this week are...
Do you like preschool? (I really hope they say yes or I'm in trouble)
Do you like fall weather?

So let me know what you've got! :)

***AAAAHHH! I Just noticed! This is my 100th post! Yippeeee!***

Do you have curly hair?
Do you have a sibling?
Do you like milk (or any number of other foods)?
Do you like the color brown?
Is your birthday in the summer (or another season)?
Do you like broccoli?
Do you have a pet?
Have you ever been to the beach?

Also, I don't know how much they're learning about numbers and letters, but, if appropriate, you could ask things like:

Is your birthday in an even month?
Does your name start with a vowel?
Does your name have more than 4 letters in it?

Do you have a dog? (cat, hamster, whatever)

Do you like to play at the park?

Do you like riding bikes?

Do you like to swim?

Have you flown on an airplane?

Have you ridden a train? (all mine would say no- we don't have passenger trains around here!)

Do you like ____ (Name a movie)

Do you like helping your mom/dad cook dinner?

Fun! I'll keep thinking!

You could also ask what their favorite part of the day has been. Reminding them of all the activities they had that day. Also pertaining to whatever the theme of the week/day is you could ask them what they have learned about apples or the weather etc. Hope this helps.

p.s. how's everything else going?
