Great back to school ice breaker: get to know you game idea. When it is your turn reach into your bag of MMs. Answer the question corresponding to the color for everyone to hear. Eat your MM!

Ticket Out the Door! Have students write their answer to a given problem as they leave the classroom each day. Motivational, and a good way to check who did it and who did not.

Make and put on the door - Teach-A-Roo: Ticket Out the Door! This can be used as an exit ticket. You could put critical thinking or math on the door. This gives the students something to do when waiting at the door.

Great way to get them thinking deeper.

To start or continue a discussion. hold students accountable for their answers and this for teaching how to discuss books in reading workshop, great anchor chart!
