Ticket Out the Door!

Hello bloggy friends!
I just wanted to share a little poster I made for my exit tickets.  I saw several of these floating around Pinterest, but decided to jazz mine up a bit!  I love giving the students a problem to solve or a “ticket out the door.”  Not only is is motivational, and gets them working,  it is a great way to assess learning in a quick way.  I put a problem or question on the board, and the kiddos answer on a 3 x 3 sticky note.  On the way out, they place the sticky on their corresponding number.  Also a quick way for me to check who completed the task as well.

I made my chart using a standard black poster board and some colored paper.  I cut the paper squares into 3-1/2″ squares and glued those puppies down.  I used a 1″ round punch for the circles and wrote the numbers with a good ‘ol Sharpie.  Then I laminated the whole thing.  (I love to laminate!)   Easy-peasy and the kiddos think it is super cool.  They actually beg me to give them “tickets” out the door!

Happy weekend!

    I’ve done this “exit ticket” idea in the past, but it has been a “verbal” ticket out…I love this! Also, I have never been a fan of “student numbers” but I believe I have changed my mind! Thanks for helping me do this!
