I've been plowing right through my reading pile and was so inspired by Total Participation Techniques, I decided to create the files and make them available for you! Check out some of the tasks available with this product!
|Students participate in classroom discussion through the use of True/Not True cards. Optionally add in the "True with modifications" or "unable to determine" cards to really push their thinking|
|Processing Cards -- Cut the outline and fold to make a table tent so you can always see where your kids are in their thinking|
|Appointment Agenda -- More sophisticated than the old standby of Clock Partners|
I am super excited about this product and will definitely be using it in my classroom this fall. I love that you can simply copy, laminate and stick things in a folder to keep at the students' desks for instant use whenever you want!
On Sunday, I linked up with The Applicious Teacher and forgot to add my freebie file when I first made the post so I'm including it here if you'd like it. One way I manage student papers without names (of which I still get tons of even in the upper grades) is with Speeding Tickets. There isn't really a penalty but my paper helpers LOVE putting these notes on the papers and sticking them in the Speeding Ticket Folder. Personally, I like the little Police Officer!
