#Motivation Giving students the language for participation is so important. Providing an anchor chart with alternatives to "I don't know!" gives them an opportunity for success, rather than to feel like they have failed. For students that need a more consistent reminder, making these on a bookmark is an excellent way to keep it in student's hands and the forefront of their minds.
This is a cute idea. How about tape a little something on the end. The kids can pull one out when it is their birthday.
