Group work trick: Each student writes their own answer on a post-it, they bring the answers together and write a group answer in the center. Upper grades- someday #groupwork
Group work idea : Each student writes their own answer on a post- it : they compare their answers and put a group answer in the middle.
Four corners post-its, one from each student, then they create the best answer in the center. Great group activity.
Hand out stickies in several colors. Kids write answer. Find other students with same color sticky. Create a best answer from all ideas and write in middle. Runde's Room: Five For Friday - Test Prep and Angry Birds
This is a good idea to make sure students are all adding their own ideas and participating in group work. Students write their ideas on sticky notes and then answer as a group in the middle. An alternate to think pair share.
"Split your students into groups of four and get them all to write a response to a question on a post-it note. Then get them to collaborate their ideas in order to create the best anwer [sic] in the middle!" - Planning how to approach a math problem.

5 Retelling Activities to Increase Our Youngest Readers' Story Comprehension - Meaning Matters. Apparently retelling is better than questions to gauge comprehension. Green bead = beginning. Red bead = end. Blue beads are story components in the middle. Have kids slide a bead from right to left as they retell the story. Love this idea!
Retelling Bracelet: Children slide a green bead as they tell the beginning, 3 random colored beads for details from the middle and a red bead for the ending. Handy!

Retelling Bracelet: Children slide a green bead as they tell the beginning, another color for details from the middle and a red bead for the ending. Do this with very familiar stories- child can retell story to parents (send story home so parents can help if child has trouble)
Retelling bracelet Have children create a bracelet using a green bead for the beginning, a red bead for the ending and 3 or more other beads for the middle. As children retell a story have them slide a bead from left to right for the beginning and then another bead for each story component. With younger children I would use three detail (middle beads) however, you may wish to increase the number with older students.
Retelling Bracelet: Children slide a green bead as they tell the beginning, 3 random colored beads for details from the middle and a red bead for the ending. Guided reading helps. Would take some scaffolding and practice.
