Exit Ticket - great idea! Use a dry erase board with the question. Have students line up and whisper answer to teacher on the way to lunch! No paper! I like it better as the students enter the room from after lunch - it would help to calm them down quickly and help avoid all the talking before getting to their chair.

Exit Ticket - great idea! Use a dry erase board with the question. No paper! But switch to musical terms (tell me one word with one beat, tell me one thing that moves "lento", etc) whisper to teacher on the way out the door.
Exit Ticket that I can use in first grade! Use dry erase boards, post-it notes, or index cards. Could use with number sense as well!
Is it bad that my immediate answer started with a "c". They had this pin labeled as a kindergarten exit ticket. Ooops my bad
Good idea for exit slip
