Ticket Out the Door- Throwback Thursday

Earlier this summer a sweet lady named Brenda from Georgia tracked me down about my “Ticket Out the Door” sign. She wanted to make one in pink. I asked her to send me a pic and she did!  Now… I gotta admit.. I think it is way cuter than mine!!! She used leftover scrapbook paper for the boxes. Neat!

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!

      I do tickets maybe once or twice a week. I don’t want them to get too burnt on them. I find that it does help speed up my slow pokes a bit though, and adds the sense of urgency. The kids think it is really fun.

    I love this idea-parking lot posters were too random for me- I have 4 science classes and I am going to make four color coded boards-put grommets at the top so that I can easily flip them when the next class comes in. Thanks for sharing!
