Higher level thinking - Give the answer and have students come up with questions

What is the Question?

Love this idea! (I often see similar activities for math, but this is the first time I've seen this activity used within a literacy lesson.) This could be a great exit ticket idea for the topic they just learned about.

FES blog - Growth Mindset anchor chart in my classroom (inspired by Developing Growth Mindsets in the Inspiring Classroom).  Based on things I've heard my kids say… WOW.  This is AMAZING!

What Can I Say to Myself? poster--Growth Mindset poster--teachers can create positive, growth mindset-type anchor charts for student self-talk.

Collaborative posters: Each student has one colored marker. Students are not allowed to swap colors with other students. Teacher can assess at a glance who contributed what to the activity.

This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move. Fun back to school ice breaker!

Building Week Part 2: Strong Shapes

Beginning of school

Opposite of "No David" Good beginning of the year activity for students. Use books "No David!" and "David at School" to discuss what is a good student?

We all dread it, but what a fun way to get the rest of the school involved and build up the kids! Great idea to surprise students with on those dreaded standardized testing days!  Would also be SOOO cool to have for first day of school, last day, etc!!!!!!!
