Summarization Strategy called "the incredible shrinking notes". Students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must take the information from the medium sized card and condense it further onto the small card. Great way for students to get to the main point/idea!
St. John's Library Spring 2010 bulletin board. Kids were asked what their favorite book from our library was, and then we make a "bookshelf" of those books. A great way for students to recommend good books to their fellow students!
Get pictures of your students and find out their favorite books. Get pictures of the book covers on the Internet and make mini books. Ask the child why they like books and write their answers on the back cover. Display on bulletin board with the saying "a book every day is imagination at play"
Previous pinner wrote: "This teacher implemented "accountability buddies." Students selected a buddy (with very strategic guidance) who became their table partner and "turn and talk" partner. Buddies also made sure homework was done, materials were out & ready, and monitored behavior. Dramatically changed behavior, class culture & sense of community, and homework completion rate."

Re-create this for math. Each square contains a student name. Put a problem up that deals with the big idea of the lesson and students must write their response as an exit card and stick it to their name slot. Easy and quick formative assessment!
