Need an idea to end the day? The End of the Day Jar has 24 questions to ask students to get them talking about their school day. This helps build community in the classroom. You can call on students to answer the questions or have them talk with a buddy.
Getting students to think about their thinking is hard! I created this simple sheet to use with sticky notes. It would be a great addition to an interactive notebook or to just keep in the classroom and allow students to use when they need "extra help" thinking!
