Table tents used during independent work time to assess visually where students are currently working
Gauges Students, Independence Work, Sticky Note, Card, Teacher, Classroom Ideas, Exit Slip, Independence Practice, Construction Paper
On each table have green, yellow and red stacks of sticky notes...as students are working on independent work, they can assess themselves by placing a sticky note on their work and as I'm walking around I can see who is struggling and whose not. Awesome strategy where students use cards to indicate how they are progressing through the independent practice. This allows the teacher to intervene when necessary and gauge student's understanding of concepts.
Awesome strategy where students use cards to indicate how they are progressing through the independent practice. Could maybe do this on an exit slip with a traffic light - kids color the light they are on...

Love this idea for who is gone go the bathroom!! Teaching 4 Real: Classroom Craziness Set Up
BATHROOM PASS: Teaching 4 Real: Classroom Craziness Set Up Day 2.. FREEBIE Included. write name on plate when gone, erase when you get back. It is so gross to have them share something to carry to the rr
"This is my newest way of keeping track of who goes to the bathroom. A colleague of mine did this in her room and I loved it so I "borrowed" this awesome idea. These are plastic plates I bought and the dollar store. I hot glued them to the wall (Put tape on the back first.) Beside, you'll see a dry erase marker. I attached it to the wall with Velcro. When students leave the room they will sign their name on the plate and erase when they return. It works like a dream."
such a cute and simple idea for a bathroom sign out

Exit Tickets, The Doors, Student, Teaching A Roo, Classroom Organizations, Classroom Management, Exit Slips, Classroom Ideas, Formations Assessment
Awesome Classroom Ideas
Ticket Out the Door can be used as a form of exit slip in any classroom as a fast formative assessment. The students are all assigned a number that is displayed on the board. The teacher gives them a question and they write their answer on a post-it and put it on their number as they leave. The teacher will be able to see who completed the task and who understands based on the answers they give. http://teach-a-roo.blogspot.com/2013/02/ticket-out-door.html?showComment=1405273840383
Ticket Out the Door! Quicker glance at who participated. Currently have a ticket folder where all students place their exit ticket -- this may be a better alternative.
Mystery Walker. This one has saved me so many headaches! Once we are all lined up and ready to leave the classroom, I choose a name from the bucket and put it in my pocket. This is our "mystery walker'. I keep my eyes on this child while we are walking in the hall. If this child has been on his/her best behavior, he/she gets to pick a prize from my treasure box when we get back to class.

These printables are great to be placed on baskets for children to use throughout the day. With this system students do not need to get up to sharpen a pencil during the school day because when theirs breaks there will be ones ready to use! This is definetly a much less noisy way for students to solve the problem of a broken pencil during lessons!
